Get to know Amanda:
As a former professional dancer/cheerleader for the Arena Football League, Amanda will definitely keep you entertained. She started dancing when she was only 4 years old and hasn’t stopped moving since then. From ballroom to hip-hop, she’s done it all.
Born and raised in the freezing Toledo Ohio, Amanda knew she was destined for much warmer weather. Amanda has lived/studied in Tel Aviv, Israel for 5 months and speaks some Hebrew. She attended the University of Arizona, where she studied Health Science and Social Sciences, and recently moved to San Francisco only 6 months ago to work at a Start Up.
Why is Amanda committed to raising money and awareness for HackCancer charities?
Amanda has had numerous family members affected by cancer throughout her life. Losing her cousin to cancer in 2009, Amanda has experienced firsthand the struggles and pain a family goes through. She welcomes the opportunity to help in any way she can, so that in the future, there will be less pain and suffering caused by this terrible disease.
Amanda's "Start Your Engines" Date Package
Start off your date at high speeds during indoor electric go kart racing, with private instruction from professional race car driver Collete Davis. Collete is the only female pro racecar driver in development for IndyCar, and prototype/IMSA Lite racing. She’s set multiple track records in the US, won numerous races in open wheel & sports car racing, represented Team USA & was named world formula champion in 2010. This private lesson with Collete is a rare and fun opportunity you won’t want to miss.
After your full throttle adventure on the track, you will enjoy a cooking lesson provided by Kitchit. Let the romance ensue as you are guided through a gourmet creation by a master chef. Our friends at Kitchit believe nothing beats a great meal shared with great company. So no matter what culinary experience you’d like to organize from an in-home chef to cooking classes or an intimate private dining space, they have what you need.
In addition to your racing and cooking adventures - here are more options that can help you get ready for the big date:
- Enjoy a $75 gift card from MyTime.com. MyTime makes it easy to book appointments with thousands of local businesses - anything from haircuts to personal training and yoga classes. All of this can be done right through the MyTime iPhone app and website - anytime and anywhere. Also, find exclusive deals (up to 60% off) during off-peak hours.
- Receive a $150 gift card from the only stylist Amanda trusts with her hair, Diane Oertwig from Salon D. Diane is an expert at color, cuts, and style. She knows how to take a tired look, and make it fresh and new. Diane will cater to your needs to help you achieve the look and feel that’s perfect for you.
- Receive a gift certificate for a 90 minute classic massage from Amanda’s favorite spa, Therapeia. It's not a doctor's office. It's not a spa. It's more like heaven. Therapeia will address the entire mind and body, immersing your every sense in the art and science of massage.
- As part of this package, Uber has generously donated a $50 credit for a ride (excluding taxi), so you can arrive in style.
