During this time, she began writing and discovered her true passion lies in food media. In 2015, Amanda became a founding member and managing editor of Edible Bronx magazine. She later co-founded food festivals and events such as The Bronx Night Market, Brewers' Dinner series, and Bronx Whiskey Club. Amanda is currently working as a recipe editor, event consultant, and freelance writer.
