Amanda first learned HTML, like many millennials, by customizing her MySpace template. Her interest was piqued and curiosity lead her to learn CSS and PHP. She built her first WordPress site in 2011 and has since been refining her skill-set in web development, pushing WordPress to its limits.

Amanda was born and raised in Corpus Christi, TX (anything for Selenas!) , but relocated to Austin, TX in 2016, to be with her now husband and family.

Her experiences as a freelance web design professional led her to Hot Dog Marketing in 2016. She now builds sites for our clients in Austin, Round Rock, Switzerland, and beyond, maintains them, and works with our team of contractor developers.

In her free time, she loves exploring all Austin and Round Rock have to offer with her family and 2 dogs.
