As a City Council member, Amanda has proven herself to be a relentless advocate for her community. With an eye toward the future and a vision of an economy that works for all Houstonians, she has led city-wide efforts to cultivate technology, innovation and public transit while planning for the effects of automation on the future of work.

One of Amanda’s guiding principles is, “be the solution.” When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in 2017, Amanda did just that by organizing hundreds of volunteers to provide ongoing relief efforts for Houston’s most vulnerable.

Amanda graduated from Eisenhower High School in Aldine ISD. She earned a B.A. in Political Science from Emory University in 2004 and a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2007. Amanda resides in the core of Houston and attends St. Monica Catholic Church in Acres Homes.
