Amanda Lopez is President and Founder of Transform Consulting Group. She holds a Masters in Social Work with a concentration in policy and program evaluation from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Society with honors from Purdue University.

Prior to starting Transform Consulting Group, she was the Policy Director of an association of human service organizations in Los Angeles and worked for the federal government at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in the Budget Office, the Head Start Office and the Children’s Bureau through the prestigious Presidential Management Fellowship program.

Amanda is most proud of being the first in her family to graduate from college and, as a result, has a strong desire to help other first generation college graduates get to and through post-secondary education.

Fun Fact: Amanda was a bowling child prodigy-bowling a 274 game when she was nine years old! She was also a ballerina for 13 years.
Favorite Food: Amanda considers herself a foodie and has trouble narrowing down her favorites. Breakfast is her favorite meal and her latest craze is eating pesto egg sandwiches with her daughter.
Favorite Quote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  – Maya Angelou
