Amanda joins CAPSEA’s team as the new Medical Advocate. The role is critical in providing survivors the help they need after a traumatic event.
“I am very excited to call myself CAPSEA’s Medical Advocate! I am looking forward to assisting in building this program! My goal is to work to ensure survivors have the best possible experience in medical settings, provide training to and build relationships with medical professionals in the area, and to participate in community events to provide education.
Before taking this position with CAPSEA, I spent the last six years as a case manager to people living with HIV, and also served as an outreach specialist. I really enjoyed working with my clients and the community to provide support and education to help bring awareness to HIV. I’m excited to bring my previous experience to my new role as Medical Advocate at CAPSEA to advocate for those experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my dog, Jax, and my family. I also enjoy doing arts and crafts, spending time outside, yoga, and attending concerts.“
