About Amanda


First, Why Do I Do This?

I learned at an early age that having a well-drafted estate plan is imperative. My father passed away when I was young, and my mother always stressed the importance of having her own affairs in order so that my sister and I would be provided for if anything were to happen to her. Over the past several years I’ve also witnessed the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease overtake the lives of several family members. I understand the importance of having a complete and adequate estate plan to bring peace of mind to both the elderly and to their loved ones as they plan for future caregiving needs. 

Favorite Part Of My Job

Helping people! I know how hard it can be to contemplate your own passing or to deal with the passing of a loved one. I appreciate the opportunity to help clients deal with these issues in a way that can bring them some peace of mind and comfort. 

Fun Facts

The coolest place I ever traveled to was Orvieto, Italy. I spent two summers as an undergraduate there working on an archaeological excavation through the college. The city itself was incredible to explore during the workweek, and I had the freedom to explore all of Italy over the weekends. It is a really unique experience to hold an artifact in your hands that’s been buried in the earth for hundreds or thousands of years! Probably my most fun fact is that I’ve been on the excavation.

On the weekends, I like to keep it simple—I spend time with my fiancé, Keith, my dogs, Elwood and Penny, and my cat, Raja. In my spare time, love to read mysteries, historical fiction, and classical literature. Jane Austen is my favorite author and if I ever have a daughter I wanted to name her Emma, but now I am rethinking that idea since everyone is named Emma lately!  I also love the TV show Fraiser. I watch it all the way through at least once a year! I enjoy the witty humor, but I especially love the character development and changing family dynamic that you witness throughout the seasons. 

My family has always been close and we spent a lot of time together. I remember making biscotti and having tea parties with my Noni, spending time with my Grampy on his boat, making a fort and wrapping Christmas presents with my Grandma Pat and frosting gingerbread cookies with my Grandma.

Education

I went to Westfield High School in Westfield, MA, and graduated in 2008. I attended Saint Anselm College from 2008-2012. I graduated magna cum laude with my BA in Classics and a certificate in Gender Studies. I attended the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover from 2017-2020. I once again graduated magna cum laude, this time while also working full time as a Legal Assistant. I was sworn into the Massachusetts Bar in January 2021.
