Amanda Boudria

Amanda Boudria, Marketing Manager

It was during a years-long period of varied work in the non-profit sector when Amanda came to a realization: access to a quality education can break the cycle of poverty. Soon after, Amanda sought to apply her business acumen and knowledge of consumer behavior to advancing the quality and availability of education. During her work with cross-sector partners shaping key policy decisions and addressing regional needs in STEM education, she learned of Corwin and deemed it a perfect fit! Ever since, she’s marketed many different lists and programs at Corwin.
