Amanda has a Bachelor degree in Communication and Media Studies. She worked in auto insurance claims for 13 years in various roles, but it was while vacationing in Canandaigua, NY in June 2018 that she discovered engraving. Amanda’s immediate response to having her own photo engraved on wood was “this is so awesome,” followed by “I cannot believe Saratoga does not have a store like this; Someone needs to open one!”
A New Path
When she found out she was being laid off from her job in August 2018, Amanda knew that she wanted to do something that utilized her creativity, artistic skills and love of designing. That’s when she remembered the store in Canandaigua and began looking into engraving machines. She researched a few companies and made a trip out to Detroit in October 2018 to visit the manufacturer of the machine that she now owns (Named Saratoga Sue) Amanda took an unfortunate situation and turned it into a career that she had only dreamed of having.
Her hardworking beast of an engraving machine, Saratoga Sue, is ready to rock and roll on all of your projects.
Stop in and say Hi to Amanda and her sweet floppy-eared four-legged helper, rescue dog Melo.
