Amanda is a military spouse and veteran who served in the Air Force for six years as a Civil Engineer including a deployment to Afghanistan. She traded in her combat boots for a diaper bag to stay home with her two boys and follow her husband’s military career. She is the host and creator of the Women of the Military Podcast sharing the stories of women who have served or continue to serve in the military.

Her journey to entrepreneurship began when she started her blog, Airman to Mom, in early 2014. It took her a while to find her path, but she now is active in the veteran community and a proud mom and military spouse.
