With a background in Social Media Marketing, Retail Management and Merchandising, she brings almost 20 years of marketing experience to the table. Amanda has worked for Von Maur, Anthropologie, AmericasMart Atlanta, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, and TalentStream, and owned her own children's boutique clothing line, Goat & Lulu, that she designed, created, and marketed. Amanda has her BA in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from the University of Nebraska. She is married with three small children and two beagles, and lives in Metro Atlanta.
Amanda began The Magnolia Marketing Group in 2016 after identifying a need for Social Media and Marketing outsourcing for small businesses. Being a small business owner herself, and married to a small business owner, she is aware of the demands on their schedules, and how marketing often-times falls by the wayside. The Magnolia Marketing Group allows for the small business owner to concentrate on the day-to day of their business and their own priorities, and works with the owner in a collaborative manner, to grow the business with creative and modern marketing ideas.
