Amanda began interning for the Board of Trade as a summer clerk while she was an undergraduate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1994, Amanda quickly secured a full time position at a securities broker-dealer in downtown Chicago. Amanda's versatility became evident while simultaneously working in the treasury, margins, and accounting departments throughout her internship. She obtained employment from a high-volume commodities clearing firm in Chicago soon after graduation, focusing her efforts on new accounts and margins. Finally, in 2006, she joined the Daniel Trading family and continues to work in the new accounts, margins, and accounting departments.
At the end of her work day, Amanda enjoys running and spending time with her family.
