Amanda Jones – Assistant Director - Amanda was born in Portland and grew up in rural Eastern Oregon. With four Bachelor’s degrees in Business, History, Sociology and Anthropology. She pursued a career in Business and Finance and after 10 successful years in the corporate structure, she became discontented and unfulfilled. In 2001 she began formal training and started studying with a Choctaw Medicine Man and continued that study learning the Native American arts of communing with Spirit. This quickly became a passion in her life, and as she continued her search for more knowledge and empowerments, including apprenticing with a Wiccan Priestess learning to weave the magickal arts into everyday life. Feeling like there was a piece that was missing, in the fall of 2004, she began formal initiatory training with one of the 7 Ancient Mystery Schools, and those missing pieces started to fall into place.
