Amanda Ritchie

Pittsburgh, Pa.

I'm a communications professional with seven years of experience in writing and public relations and two and a half years of experience in magazine publishing. Between 2007 and 2011, I developed, launched, and managed the University of Pittsburgh's social media channels. I have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Ohio University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I'm currently working on my MFA in creative nonfiction writing at Chatham.

I am committed to living a cruelty-free and eco-friendly lifestyle and especially enjoy writing about topics relating to sustainability and environment.
