Amanda “Mandy” Lutes joins us from Magnolia where she lives
with her grandparents Don and Kathy Junker. A recent graduate of Illinois State University,
she received a bachelor of science degree in public relations and minor in
English technical writing. Mandy has held multiple sales and communications
internships at Illinois State, in the Bloomington-Normal communities and even
in Wellington, New Zealand. What Mandy tells her
she likes most about her job is helping her clients promote their businesses
and seeing what an impact a positive marketing plan can do for them.
In her spare time, Mandy enjoys writing, playing board games,
frequenting cafés, trying new foods, doing anything crafty and spending time
with friends and family. She isn’t afraid to try most anything once, including
skydiving and bungee jumping, which she did with the Kiwis in New Zealand.
