Meet the Bakersfield Officers!
Amanda is a bit of a nostalgic nerd. Most of her geek loves are from decades past (specifically the 80’s and 90s). It probably has to do with the fact that she started her journey into geekdom at a very early age. She would listen to Dr Demento on the radio with her dad while they cleaned the house on the weekends, exposing her to great comedic works and the fabulousness that is Weird Al. Needless to say, the nerdiness was strong with this one. Growing up, Star Trek:The Next Generation (and Deep Space Nine…and Voyager), Monty Python, The X-Files and classic SNL were regular family viewing. At age five she also developed her first die-hard fandom in the form of a boy band named New Kids on the Block. While she never got to see them in concert when she was little, she has since seen them twice in her adult life, and its been a serious dream come true.
Amanda spends most of her days helping run the PTA at her son’s school, keeping her daughter from chasing the cat around the house, and occasionally getting to read a book that doesn’t involve Dr Seuss. She has an affinity for teen movies from the 80’s (long live the Brat Pack!), but can just as easily quote Clueless and Mean Girls. She also has a fondness for streaming video games on Twitch for charity, taking part in Extra Life and Play Live.
