Amanda moved to Ullapool in 2015 after many years visiting the area on hillwalking holidays. After 30 years in the PR industry, she trained as a business coach and now helps entrepreneurs and busy professionals reach their goals. In the mid-2000s, she worked for the UK government’s waste delivery body on campaigns such as Recycle Now and Love Food Hate Waste, moving on to run her own communications consultancy specialising in environmental and climate issues. Previously a volunteer Director with BroomPower, Amanda joined the UCT Board in 2018 and co-chairs the UCT Environment & Sustainability Working Group. She loves walking the local mountains with her two cocker spaniels and going to music gigs – as well as playing music with friends – whenever she can.
