She is a humanitarian, writer, educator, artist, and dancer who has worked in the fields of crisis and psychological trauma recovery and social injustice since the mid 1990s. Her initial experience began in the United States, where she worked in Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), addiction, trauma treatment facilities, and with prisoners.
Ms. Lee has extensive global, volatile, humanitarian, natural disaster and medical emergency experience in various contexts. She has consulted with many NGOs and UN agencies providing support to HQ, coordination teams, line management, expat, national staff, and beneficiaries through individual and group psychosocial support and interventions, training development and delivery.
Amanda's dedication to growth and healing is a personal calling. She's written that, "The bravest journey is the one within." To step beyond the words she has identified with herself, such as “victim, addict, and survivor,” transcending into one who thrives and walks alongside those brave enough to heal is an honor.
