Amanda grew up in Wellington and graduated from Victoria University with a BA in French and Italian.
A hankering for full immersion led her to live in Italy, France and Switzerland where she completed postgraduate studies in translation at the University of Geneva.
An eclectic series of language-related jobs followed – including three years with the Italian America’s Cup Team Prada – before the promise of year-round summer lured her to New Caledonia for an extended stay.
Amanda’s love of classical music developed in tandem with years of ballet training from a tender age. She is a keen supporter of local performing arts and is involved with Wellington theatre.
