Farmers Market Representative
Amanda joined the Green Box team in the spring of 2023 after learning about the landfill crisis and the important role composting has in not only reducing waste but reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to composting, she is also passionate about reducing individual plastic use and the relationship between plastics and ocean health.
Amanda recently received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Voice Performance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she published a vocal repertoire guide entitled, “Selecting Solo Literature for the Developing Classical Singer: A Pedagogical Repertoire Guide for Teachers of Voice.”
When she is not working for Green Box, Amanda works as an Adjunct Professor of Voice at Carroll University and Beloit College. She is also a freelance soprano and has most recently performed with the educational outreach company, Opera for the Young. Additionally, she volunteers with 350 Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization that works to make transformational progress toward environmental justice and solving the climate crisis.
Amanda’s passion for the earth led her to publish her first collection of poems entitled, “Phoenix: Depicting Death and Rebirth through Seasonal Poems of an Everchanging Landscape.” This collection depicts the beauty of impermanence through poems of autumn, winter, spring, and summer, all inspired by images of the everchanging natural world taken in and around Madison, WI.
