Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Amanda is a Platoon Parent for Lima Company, San Diego and excited about connecting with and supporting other Marine/Recruit families.
Amanda has lived in Oklahoma most of her life and currently resides in Oklahoma City. She's been married to her husband Jason, a Marine Veteran, for 3 years. Together they are a blended family with 4 kids. They have 3 sons ages, 19, 11, and 9 and 1 daughter who is 7 and their Husky, Remi. Amanda is a full-time real estate agent and stay at home mom. She volunteers at her church and at her younger kids' school. In her free time she loves to travel and stay active. Amanda and her husband workout together every morning and like to do outdoor activities including hiking, running, and camping. Every year her whole family participates in the OKC Memorial Marathon including her Marine! (When he's able to now) They are hoping to add the Marine Corps Marathon this year as well! Amanda's oldest son is her Marine. He joined the DEP when he was 17 and graduated boot camp in December of 2017. He is currently in MOS school. Amanda is so proud of her Marine and his decision to serve his country!
Amanda loves giving back, so volunteering with Marine Parents gives her the opportunity to give back to other families who are experiencing the same things she has gone through. She hopes she can offer the love, support, and understanding that she received to those new RCT parents and families.
