In addition to her day job, Amanda invests time in organisations which provide professional networks to members and focus on sharing knowledge to support professionals throughout their career. As an MRICS, Amanda was quickly accepted into the NSW RICS Matrics Committee in 2018 three months after relocating from the UK. She was voted by her committee peers to step up as NSW Chair in January 2019. Also in 2018, Amanda was a guest presenter and panel member for Property Funds Association Masterclass events in Melbourne and Sydney presenting ‘Utilising Office Waste’. She is a participant in the Property Council of Australia 500 Women in Property 2020 Program. Amanda was appointed General Manager of NSW Women in Design and Construction (WIDAC) in 2019. WIDAC’s mission is to empower, inspire, challenge and actively support women within the design, construction and related industries by creating a community of resilient and like-minded individuals.
Amanda understands that diversity is far more encompassing than gender expanding to age, race, religion, family, sexuality, culture, disability, personality, ethnicity and many more. She firmly believes that everyone is entitled to feel comfortable being themselves where they live, work and play.
