Amanda Smith of Sandwich, Illinois is the Treasurer and Secretary of TCWR. With her education background in business, Amanda can be found tracking our donation information, writing up thank you letters, processing payroll, and maintaining our bookkeeping — and that’s just on Mondays. The rest of her days are spent helping to do whatever it takes to keep TCWR functioning at the highest levels and herding her wonderful family of five.
Prior to moving to Eureka Springs, Amanda and her family happened upon TCWR while vacationing. Having always loved animals it was difficult to hear how big the problem of the exotic pet trade was, however, learning of the issues, finding out about what TCWR does, and its mission, Amanda was inspired to join the work to help give these animals a voice.
When not working at the Refuge, her favorite thing to do is hang out with her husband and three boys –taking advantage of all the outdoor activities that NWA has to offer.
