AMANDA HANSEN: WRITER

Do you have marketing needs? I can meet them.

    

A WRITER OF MANY THINGS

I have a rather varied work experience; I was once told that in order to be the best, you had to know how to do everything well and that’s exactly what I’ve worked to do in my career. I have been a Writer, a Recruiter, an Editor, a Manager and a Product Owner. I am very proud of the work I have done thus far in my career and look expectantly toward the future opportunities I am offered.
