Amanda R Ford

About Me

Highly effective communicator, project manager, designer, and developer.

I believe in using technology purposefully. My goal is to work with stakeholders and end-users to diagnose problems, first, then identify requirements to find creative solutions using a combination of the right technology, design, processes, governance, and people. With nearly two decades of experience in fast-paced IT and Digital Agency environments, I have maintained a reputation as dependable, level-headed, and thoughtful.
