Amanda has known Dave for many years. They worked together in the same law firm after law school, and Dave even had a hand in hiring Amanda for her first job. Their shared values and involvement at the same church developed a friendship beyond just colleagues.
Amanda studied Psychology at Northern Illinois University and then went on to Washington University School of Law in St. Louis. Around the same time that Dave was thinking about starting Edwards Group, Amanda left their firm to work for the Attorney General’s office.
In 2009 she had her first son and was able to transition to part-time work. She now has another son who will be turning one in July. Amanda jokes that her main hobby is “chasing after little boys.”
Amanda says that she has always been interested in estate planning, but has been especially interested in the Edwards Group process because it’s so different. She is happy to be onboard with a firm that serves their clients so well.
When Amanda isn’t busy chasing her 2-year-old and 9-month-old boys around, she enjoys getting outside with the whole family, biking and being involved in the family’s church.
Her secret goal while working at Edwards Group is to get Dave’s daughter, Bailey, into a Cubs shirt. When asked about bringing a Cubs fan into the office, Dave replied, “Yeah, well, even Cubs fans have some good qualities!” Stop by the office and see how the Cubs fan and Cardinals fan are getting along after this week’s series finishes up in Chicago!
