Amanda is an Emmy-nominated and award-winning journalist. Since 2018, Amanda has loved being part of the FOX 35 'Good Day Orlando' morning news team.
While she was born and raised in the Sunshine State, she has moved to three other states as a broadcast journalist. Most recently, she reported for News 13 in Orlando, investigating community concerns and covering court cases.
