Chief of Staff
Amanda Dudley received her undergraduate degree in human development and family studies and her master’s level early childhood special education endorsement from the University of Nevada, Reno. For over ten years, Amanda worked with children and their families, providing educational and advocacy services both within family homes and in the classroom.
Upon joining Thrive Wellness Reno amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Amanda developed and managed an educational wellness program that provided educational and emotional support to children and their families while navigating the nuances of virtual schooling during the 2020/2021 school year. Next, she built and led the case management program and provided case management services for clients in Thrive’s eating disorder and perinatal mental health day treatment programs for over two years before becoming the chief of staff.
When she isn’t working hard to support Thrive Reno’s clients and staff, Amanda enjoys reading, watching reruns of “Friends” and “New Girl,” sipping iced lattes in local coffee shops, and exploring the outdoors with her husband, son, and their two sweet golden retrievers.
