Amanda was born in Montana and went to college at Gonzaga University in eastern Washington. She moved to New Mexico after college to take a job as a whitewater rafting guide, but starting working here in the off-season and never left! She has worked virtually every job available at Smith Vet, including vet assistant, CSR, pharmacy tech and inventory manager- she is now our HR and Inventory Manager!

In her free time, Amanda enjoys spending time with her pets Hyside, Wombat and Chibi (the first two are dogs, the third is a fuzzy gray monster who might charitably be called a cat). She also likes baking, gardening, singing, and various home improvement projects, as well as hanging out with her husband, Jared. She is a VERY passionate supporter of the Gonzaga University men's basketball team- GO ZAGS!
