---Amanda Bryant

A Western North Carolina native who has lived and worked in both Washington, DC and Asheville for the past 12 years, Ms. Bryant most recently served as a Strategic Communications Executive at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) External Affairs. She brings extensive experience from that role as well as her role at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Her work at both agencies has given her a solid science background, along with crucial organizational and communications skills.

“To be given the opportunity to grow the museum into a showcase of science, technology, and innovation is extremely gratifying. I’m honored to work with an incredible team who is transforming AMOS into the attraction that locals and tourist alike put on their must experience list while also leading the conversation on how we attract more science and technology professionals to our diverse area and support workforce development through STEM education.”

Ms. Bryant also holds a degree in education and communications – a tremendous advantage as AMOS plans to expand its educational offerings, including camps and at-school and afterschool programs. She and her husband, Brandon, live in North Asheville with their six-year-old daughter, Charlee, and their dog, Tag.
