Originally from Northern Virginia, Amanda moved to Charlottesville in 2011 for college and graduated from UVA in 2015 with degrees in Arts Administration and Anthropology. Amanda’s first passion is for the arts, and she has worked with a variety of arts organizations in Charlottesville including the Music Resource Center, Light House Studio, and most recently The Garage here at Christ Church. She and Brian McMillen, a former Christ Church fellow, married in 2016 and now live in town with their beloved housecat. In her spare time, Amanda makes and sells beeswax candles, paints, and listens to her husband play folk tunes on the guitar. Amanda was a fellow during the 17-18 year, and is now very happy to be serving Christ Church as the Ministry Intern and Assistant Youth Minister.
