In summer 2010, Amanda participated in the Sede di Roma program and had an internship with MBP, a construction consulting firm where she produced Scopes of Work and developed cost estimates. The next summer she worked at Johnson, Mirmiran, & Thompson in their MEP department as an Electrical intern.

This past summer, Amanda was an Electrical intern at SmithGroupJJR and improved her Revit skills by developing lighting and power plans, producing panel schedules and creating electrical/fire alarm risers. She also completed LEED online documentation.
