I’m Amanda Rolbiecki very soon to be Amanda Larson! Originally born and raised in Wisconsin. After attending school at the University of Wisconsin I started work for Target. A few years in I had the opportunity presented to me to go work overseas. That journey lasted about two years and led me from Germany, to Ireland, and finally ended my time in Wales. When I returned back to the US in 2017 I was placed for work in Georgia and soon after moved to Charlotte, NC. From there I was given the opportunity to move to the sunshine state of Florida, which I did not really want, but found myself falling in love with College Park!
