ABOUT amanda


I'm an award-winning, experienced freelance writer with a focus on health and fitness. My features, profiles, and essays appear regularly in the Washington Post, Outside magazine, ESPNW, Runner’s World and more. I stay integrated in my local community by writing general interest pieces for Her Mind, and dabble in the occasional travel-based feature for various outlets.

I bring years of experience to the table and cut my teeth in medical trade journals while freelancing for my local newspaper. As the publishing business continues to evolve, I stay up-to-date with a constant immersion in continuing education. I bring a passion for journalism to the table in everything I write.

When I'm not writing, I'm often outside hitting the trails with my four-legged running partner. Running and writing go together.
