Amanda Heller Donaca, BS, MBA

Amanda Heller-1-opt

Dean of Admissions / Military Education Coordinator

Amanda joins the ACHS team with more than seven years’ experience in admissions advising. She earned a BS in Speech Communications from Oregon State University (OSU) and proceeded to earn her MBA from ITT Technical Institute.

Amanda’s passion for education started when she began teaching Public Speaking classes at OSU. When she left college to pursue her career, she realized that she did not want to be in any other industry.  Amanda loves helping people figure out their career goals and follow their passions, and seeing them be successful. Admissions is a very rewarding experience that has shaped who she is today.

Amanda loves to spend her free time reading, canning and preserving, and participating in game nights with friends! You can find her spending a lot of time with her border collie dog, Sierra. While she grew up on a farm and misses it, she loves being here in the city!
