In 2002, she received the Salvation Army’s “Making A Difference Award” for these activities. During her twenties, she went on to become an award-winning schoolteacher and in 2010 received the Excellence in Jewish Education award from The Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Additionally, Amanda became a certified Kripaluand Jivamukti yoga teacher. Today, Amanda owns and operates a vegan ice cream business: Ms. Amanda’s Compassionate Ice Cream (which promotes animal welfare, environmental stewardship, feminism, keeping money in our local economy, in addition to deliciousness). Her business and yoga classes are both avenues which she has used to educate and encourage people to get involved in progressive social change. Additionally, Amanda has been involved in activism for public policy grounded in compassion since she was a college student. She is a proud feminist and child advocate.
