Early Fraternity Life and Career
Amanda was born in Upland California and moved to Murfreesboro TN in June of 1997, a month before she turned 7. Other then attending Kindergarten at a Catholic school in California, Amanda has been homeschooled her entire life. She graduated Highschool in 2008 from Gateway Christian Academy. She started attending Middle Tennessee State University in August of 2008 and received a 4.0 her first semester. Because of this, Amanda received an invite to join Phi Sigma Pi National Honors Fraternity. Amanda knew she wanted to be involved in an organization on campus but was still unsure of which to choose and thought this would be a good option. At the RUSH night Amanda met (future Brothers) Courtney Fisher, Leanne Fuller and Emily Ress during a game night. Making these friends with these girls made Amanda want to come back to other events which in turn brought her to Initiation, multiple quizzes, and then Induction on April 13th 2009 as number 394 in the Beta Psi Chapter.
