Keep reading to learn more about Amanda and how she’s become such a vital part of the Trust and Will team.
Did you find Trust & Will, or did Trust & Will find you?
“I came across T&W through my job search. What stood out to me was the leadership team — they were so warm and welcoming during my interview. The genuine, kind, family-like atmosphere sold me! I was really looking for my next “home” and now I feel like I found that at T&W.”
What is it about estate planning that you want to fix?
“Estate Planning seems to be a somber topic that we tend to shy away from since it’s tied to losing a family member and experiencing a great deal of sadness. Something that none of us want to think about, which leads to a gap in education around the importance of having one. I’d like to change the conversation around and educate families on the importance of creating an Estate Plan. Creating an Estate Plan allows you to prepare for the future and protect the ones you love — seems like an optimistic way to think about it and will hopefully encourage more families to take action. “
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
“I have 5+ years of Marketing experience. I’ve worn many hats — Paid Media Strategy, Marketing Analytics, Integrated Marketing Campaigns, Email Marketing Automation, and more!”

If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and why?
“I would like to meet both of my grandpa’s. I’d love to hear their stories about living through a world-war and what life was like for them at my age. I’d love to hear about the differences and maybe similarities between generations.”
