Buffalo Jill of The Week Amanda
This week, we take a look at now-4th-year vet Ambassador Amanda as our Jill of The Week. 2010 will not only be Amanda's 4th year on the squad, but her 1st as a co-captain, although she was already doing a lot to help out Keisha last year. Amanda's known by the fans for her classic beauty, drawing reminders of Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe but to those of us who know her, she's a lot more than that. For one thing, she's an outstanding leader and has been showing that in some measure since her rookie year, even. That's no big surprise considering all her past experience in management roles on her regular jobs as well as her management degree. Her attention to detail and a mind full of ideas for improvements are just a few of the attributes she brings to the co-captain's role. She’s also known for how well she treats people as she's an attentive listener and when she's talking with children, she gets just as excited as they do when they get to talk to her. Interaction like that is going to make her a great mother one day after she leaves the squad, which we hope is a long time from now, obviously. She almost didn't have the opportunity to help out and become a co-captain. After 2 years on the Ambassador squad, she tried out for the dance squad, dancing alongside former calendar covergirl Jenica. Dancing since the age of 4, it's no surprise that she did make the final cut for dance, along with 3 other former Ambassadors, but after a few months switched back to Ambassador due to work commitments. You can read more about Amanda in the webgroup's files section this week where you'll find a copy of her 2008 Jills bio.
