Hi! I’m Amanda (Woodward) Davis. I am a Lawrence, Kansas native currently working as a Communications Project Manager for an international communications and marketing firm, based in Victoria, BC. My husband, Josh, and I live in East Lawrence and are very active with our neighborhood.

I have been running meetings, volunteering with numerous charity organizations, planning large events, and public speaking since I was 11 years old. I love doing work that benefits the community around me and have a very deep love of Lawrence.

I have been actively involved in and held leadership positions in community and civic organizations. I am a former Event Co-Chair for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Douglas County, founder and former Event Chair of the Girlfriend’s Gala, President of the Board of Directors for Just Food, the local Douglas County, Kansas food bank, and for the Social Media Club of Lawrence.
