Over the course of more than fourteen years, Amanda has demonstrated superior management techniques, a strong devotion to helping others, and a remarkable ability to coordinate events with other agencies. My professional relationship with Amanda required us to coordinate with other businesses for promotional purposes. Amanda was always eager to take the lead in reaching out to these businesses and committing countless hours to working out the logistics involved in order to incorporate both our company’s needs, as well as those who we were partnering with. Amanda’s positive attitude and intense motivation fosters a very effective and enjoyable team atmosphere which makes her a true asset to any company. Always willing to take on new challenges, Amanda’s intrinsic motivation continues to be demonstrated by her desire to operate within a non-profit organization helping others; where I believe her true passion resides. Amanda’s invaluable insight and attention to detail compliments her management techniques by continuously implementing innovative procedural revisions to improve the efficiency of operations at Celebration! Cinema. Implementation of her procedural revisions has brought significant positive changes in both the output of productivity and the overall synergy among the team. On a personal level, Amanda continues to be my most reliable associate that I can always confide in and obtain assistance from whenever needed. With great admiration for Amanda, I know whole heartedly she is more than capable of conquering any presented objective and effectively advancing any given mission.

In my time practicing law, Amanda English has been present for every major milestone, and has supported me through every disaster. When we first practiced together, she helped me get past difficult personalities so I could see the work that needed to be done – and even enjoy it. When I moved to a different firm, she counseled me through that transition and helped me know I made the right decision. When the economy turned and I lost my job, Amanda’s editing skills changed the responses I received on my resume dramatically. Instead of one or two interviews a month, I had one or two a week. I credit my current position to Amanda’s skills with language and her ability to tailor a document to the audience. She is loyal, thoughtful, creative, kind, and sees solutions where others see disaster. I have been fortunate to work with her and I hope to work with her again in the future.

As a just-out-of-law-school attorney, especially in a down economy, getting a job is obviously the primary goal, and a key part of reaching that goal is having an outstanding resume. My resume was in decent shape but wasn't getting any results ... until I met Amanda. Amanda took one look at my sad, single piece of paper and went to work with creative and unusual suggestions to make my resume stand out of the crowd. She was energetic, communicative, and as excited about updating my resume as I was. She explained the very sound reasons behind all her suggestions, and led me in the right direction without forcing her opinions on me. Sure enough, the first job I submitted the revised application to called to schedule an interview!
