Amanda served in the Air Force for six years as a Civil Engineer including a combat deployment to Afghanistan. When her first son was born, she traded in her combat boots for a diaper bag to stay home with her son.

Shortly after leaving the military, she began her blog Airman to Mom  as a creative outlet for her to share her experiences. Today she is a mom of two boys, a Space Force spouse, the author of Women of the Military, and the host and creator of Women of the Military podcast.

Amanda is using her voice to help create resources for women who have served; while also inspiring the next generation of women to serve.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Her journey from Airman to mom, blogger & podcast host.

  • Ways civilians can support military families.
  • Her mission to help young women as they join the military.
