Hello! I’m Amanda – a twenty-eight year old freelance web designer living in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Like most 20-somethings that were born and raised in Iowa, I moved far, far away after college and was certain that I’d find a job and career that I was completely passionate about. Unlike most 20-somethings, I only struck out big once before I found something that I truly enjoy doing. I started working for a golf marketing and public relations firm as the Advertising and Digital Media Manager in May of 2012. My days at the PR firm have been spent providing social media marketing for PGA TOUR events, managing print and digital ad campaigns for national golf clubs and updating client websites. For an ex-college golfer and tech nerd like myself, it’s pretty much the perfect gig.
A few months into starting my current job, I started taking online coding lessons and teaching myself how to build websites. Not long after that, a designer friend of mine pushed me into helping her client with their website. It was around then that Amanda O’Brien Design was born. Fast forward about three years and I am still working full-time at the PR firm, but as their Senior Web Designer. Call it luck. Call it fate. Call it whatever you want. I’m just grateful to have found a career that I love. So, I’m not asking questions…I’m just rolling with it.
On that note… I’d like to thank you for stopping by to learn more about who I am and what I do. If you’re looking to take your online presence to the next level and need some help getting there, shoot me an email or click on that contact page and fill out the form. I’d love to meet you!
