Amanda is the daughter of a veteran and the sister of an active duty soldier. She counts many veterans and soldiers among her friends. Amanda has seen first hand the struggles of those leaving service.
While reading about the suicide of a veteran it occurred to Amanda that she needed to help. "I needed to help them find their purpose in life again. Everything they had known and everything that they had lived was no longer the same," Amanda said.
This concern in Amanda mingled with an experience she had volunteering with at-risk children in high school--and an idea was born.
That idea blossomed into The Joe & Jane Project. Now, Amanda and her team of intelligent and kind-hearted partners have set out with a passion to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children and veterans.
