Adventure is not just the things we do - it's an Attitude

Amanda has learned a little about-facing fears, overcoming obstacles and just getting it done. Her own lessons about leaning into adventure have guided her from a small town in Missouri to different adventures across the United States and around the world. An Ozarkian at heart and Branson High School graduate, her life has been driven by a desire to explore the world, its limits, and her own. 

She’s faced enormous challenges, hurts and failures and allowed the lessons to lead her to immense growth, personally and professionally. Through it all, she learned to dig deeper, lean on others, and to never give up.

Digging deeper is what allowed her to complete her most recent epic adventure solo paddling more than 3,300 miles from the headwaters of the Missouri River to the Gulf of Mexico. Emerging from the adventure a different woman, she shares a story of perseverance, patience, faith, and a whole lot of hard work.
