Amanda Miller – Mission Services Coordinator

At the age of 16, while attending Bakersfield High School, Amanda Miller got her first job at Camelot Park. Since then, she has graduated from California State University, Bakersfield with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts. Her work history is diverse, including positions in retail, food services, fitness, family law, insurance, and non-profit. Amanda’s career with Goodwill began in September of 2012 as a temporary assignment which quickly turned into a position as the Benefits Administrator. A few months after starting her new position with Goodwill, she was promoted to the Human Resources Supervisor where she gained some useful experience and knowledge that has made her successful in her current position as Mission Services Coordinator. Amanda counts the last three years of work in Mission Services as rewarding as she gets to work one-on-one with individuals with barriers to employment.

Favorite thing to do: “My favorite thing to do is eat out. I love to try new foods and recently started reviewing restaurants on YELP. I would consider myself a ‘foodie.’”

Best place traveled to: “My all-time favorite trip was when I was in junior high and my family sailed around the Virgin Islands for 10 days. Each island had unique characteristics; the waters were crystal clear; the sea critters were ones you only see on TV; and the stars at night were bright and vivid. It was certainly a trip I will never forget.”
