Q: Where did you grow up and what was it like?
Amanda: I grew up in Northford, Connecticut. It’s a really small town, and I’ve always been surrounded by a lot of family. I was raised on a big farm so I’ve been around animals all my life, although I’m definitely not your typical farm girl.
Q: How would your family and close friends describe you?
Amanda: They’d all describe me as trustworthy; I’m someone that you can come to if you need to talk. I’m bubbly and can be a little bit of an airhead at times. Family is really important to me. As an older sister and one of the oldest of many cousins, I’m very involved. I love being around my family.
Q: Who is the most influential person in your life?
Amanda: I’d have to say both of my parents. They’re both business owners and basically everything I want to be as a person. My dad is really successful and is such an inspiration – he worked (and still works) really hard to get to where he is today. He’s very goal-oriented and strong-minded, and is someone I’ve always looked up to. My mom is my best friend. I tell her everything! She’s always been there for me and I know I can always go to her for anything and she’ll support me 100%.
Q: What is your all-time favorite movie?
Amanda: I don’t really watch a lot of movies or TV. If I had to choose, I’d probably go with Just Go With It with Jennifer Aniston. Love her!
Q: What is currently playing on your iPod?
Amanda: I’ll listen to anything. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of rock; I like meaningful music. Anything but rap or country!
Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
Amanda: Channing Tatum. Obviously. I watch all of his movies, especially the Step Up series. There’s just something about the way he dances…
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
Amanda: Painting my nails. I change the color at least twice a week, and no chipping allowed! Everyone thinks I’m crazy, but it’s just something I have to do. I literally can’t go more then like two days without nail polish on. It’s almost an OCD thing.
Q: If you could spend an entire paycheck without worrying about bills or savings, what would you spend it on?
Amanda: I’d buy another Louis bag, no question. Purses are great investments – they last a really long time if you take care of them. They’ll even become vintage one-of-a-kind bags by the time I have a daughter, and then they’ll be valuable hand-me-downs! Definitely worth the money
Q: What’s your favorite hobby or pastime?
Amanda: Working out. I find it therapeutic (sometimes). I like to take kickboxing classes. It’s a great way to get out the stress of the day – I wish I had more time for it.
Q: Who is your favorite musical artist or band?
Amanda: I love Beyoncé. Not just as a musical artist, but as a person. She seems like such a strong person and I think she makes a great role model.
Q: Describe your perfect Saturday afternoon.
Amanda: I’d spend it with Joe, my boyfriend. It would probably be on a boat or near the water so I could really relax, with a glass of wine and some cheesecake. My puppies would be there, as well, of course.
Q: What’s something your co-workers would be surprised to learn about you?
Amanda: I was on an episode of MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen. A friend of mine got chosen for the show and I was a part of her grand entrance fashion show. It was a pretty cool experience!
Yankees or Red Sox? Oh god. I’m a Yankees fan at heart, but I have a die-hard Red Sox fan for a boyfriend. So I’ve learned to be neutral!!
Mac or PC? Mac
Pepsi or Coke? Pepsi
