Amanda sees living and working spaces as reflections of people’s interior lives, and helps clients understand what their environment is communicating about them.
As a natural outgrowth of her Feng Shui practice, clients have asked Amanda to lead them to sacred sights that have inspired her. She’s delighted to take students to her homeland, Ireland, where she feels a deep connection with the Celtic energies of the Emerald Isle.
As a girl growing up in the Irish countryside, she’d ride her horse through the rolling green hills, singing and rejoicing in the splendor of the natural world.

She often opens or closes Yoga classes with her heart-centered chants and incorporates music in her Manifesting your Soul Mate Workshop.
