Meet the Crew
As the Gatekeeper Client Manager for Golden Shovel Agency, Amanda Jenkins works directly with economic development leaders in communities across the country. Her educational background and experience include marketing, media, and project management. Amanda's Golden Shovel clients benefit from her most recent experience managing an economic development program in rural California, which gives her a unique understanding of her clients' hurdles and successes. Whether it is working with communities or traveling to new locales, she has a passion for discovering the distinctive features of an area and sharing those discoveries with others through her work or travel blog. When not traveling the world, she enjoys spending her free time with family, friends, and the occasional Netflix binge.
