After graduating from Colorado State University with a business degree in finance and real estate, Amanda's career has taken her on a stimulating path of analytical yet creative assignments. Beginning at Humana, in thier Chicago office, Amanda worked in the accounting department where she was able to massage her love of spreadsheets. (Yes, she is an Excel enthusiast...) In 2006, she transferred to the Washington DC area and began working at Astra HR as a tax supervisor. It didn't take long for executives at Astra to notice her strangely creative aptitude and, upon this realization, the company quickly offered her a position in the marketing department. Amanda accepted this challenge with intrigue and excitement. In 2009, she had the opportunity to put both the creative and mathematical sides of her personality to work at Gensler, the global design and architecture firm. In their Finance department, she was stimulated by the strict financial regimen but worked closely with creative artists and project managers which stimulated innovative ideas. Worksheets became beautiful pieces of art and workflows became charismatic.
As 2012 drew to a close, she and her husband, Erich, had their first child, Max. Upon meeting Max, she immediately put her professional career on hold and fully submerged herself in motherhood. Erich, incredibly lovingly, supported this path as the best for their family. In 2016, their second child, Brooks, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. After three and a half years of treatment, Brooks has recovered and life resumes at a more normal pace for their small family. This freedom has allowed for Amanda to again rejoin the professional workforce.
With her husband as a preeminent realtor in the DC Metropolitan area, it only makes sense that she would put her talents to use in his business. She maintains the company accounting but finds real joy in creating Erich Cabe Team advertisements. As the business evolves and her children become more independent, she finds more ways to harness her role as the marketing coordinator. Helping to create and launch marketing campaigns, design brochures and other assets, and (especially) champion Erich's acumen, Amanda's days are full of fun and stimulation. She is insightful, adaptable, clever and a gifted writer.
Aside from the ever-dynamic role in the (now) family business, Amanda is a fitness enthusiast and an avid runner. Beyond these things, if she has any freetime, you can find her splashing paint onto a canvas or wood or any spare object around the house.
