Amanda Duncan discovered her passion for servant leadership in 2003 when she joined AmeriCorps with the Jumpstart Pittsburgh program. She became a site manager with that organization after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006 with a B.S. in Psychology and Italian. She recruited, trained, mentored, and coached AmeriCorps members to mentor low-income preschool children in the city of Pittsburgh for the past 7 years. In April 2014, Amanda received her Masters in Public Policy and Management from the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. In her free time, Amanda loves exploring Pittsburgh’s offerings with her husband and daughter, like hiking the trails in Frick Park, Saturday morning shopping in the Strip, or discovering a delicious new restaurant in the East end. Amanda is most looking forward to working with the PULSErs to create positive change in Pittsburgh and energize the city with youth, creativity, and talent.
