Our esteemed colleague Amanda Hanley has decided to return to school to pursue a Masters in Education degree at her alma mater, Villanova University. Amanda will put that degree to work teaching high school English, thus allowing for uninterrupted beach time during the summer months. During her nearly two years here, Amanda has used her considerable verbal skills to persuade high-profile clients to hire our photographers and, more recently, to bring excellent photographers on board with Wonderful Machine.
Starting in the marketing and production department, Amanda took charge of our portfolio events. From there, she transitioned effortlessly into the role of photographer liaison, where she has masterfully managed the difficult task of evaluating and inviting every potential member of our site. According to Amanda, her favorite parts of working at Wonderful Machine included portfolio reviews (both hosting for our photographers and conducting them at PhotoPlus Expo) and helping our members along the way as photographer liaison. She’s become a great friend to us, and we will miss her.
