About Amanda Nelson

Having just moved to Sacramento, I look forward to meeting and sharing with the women of WomenUp Network.

I grew up and went to college in the Bay Area, then fled for sites in Europe, New York, the South, Pacific Northwest, and now back to my home state.  It’s been a long and fascinating journey, and feels darned good to be ‘home.’

The past 30 years have had me involved in the nonprofit sector, with the last 15 being spent as and executive director, coach and consultant.

Currently, I am the executive director of Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation, and feel really proud to be fulfilling a mission so critical to women’s health.

Play time includes attending concerts, theater, movies, and the plethora of truly great restaurants that this town has to offer.  When not indulging those senses, I can be found on a trail with my pup, Flora, exploring our new town.
