Amanda is committed to empowering young women in the Vail Valley through Girl PowHER, a nonprofit she founded in 2011. The program serves hundreds of young women annually.
Amanda was named the Vail Valley Foundation Citizen Year in 2023 for her various philanthropic endeavors over two decades in the Vail Valley. She is one of the youngest recipients ever to receive this distinguished award.
Additionally, Amanda collects contemporary art and aims to expand the arts and culture in the Denver area. She is a trustee at the Denver Art Museum and serves on their executive committee. She also serves as the chair of the Collections Committee at the DAM.
