Amanda F

As the HR Manager, Amanda provides administrative support to the CI Human Resource Department and assists the CI HR Director in the operation of daily functions for Collaborative and all affiliated organizations. This includes assisting with recruitment and retention, interviewing and on-boarding, conducting reference checks and processing backgrounds, completing audits, processing benefits and payroll changes, and completing special HR projects as needed and assigned. Amanda also acts as a liaison, consultant, and mentor to all of Collaborative’s network Human Resource representatives. 

Prior to Collaborative, Amanda worked as a Human Resource Manager at an affiliated Human Services organization. She oversaw and coordinated recruitment and retention efforts while facilitating a positive and engaging experience for employees. Amanda has worked in the Human Services industry for nearly 15 years and has been in the HR field for over 6 years. 

Outside of work, Amanda loves spending time with her family. Her partner in crime is her American Eskimo, Schatzi. She also loves sports - anything Nebraska, especially basketball and football and the New England Patriots. In fact, Amanda is a Fantasy Football champion! 

She is also passionate about animals. So much so that she holds a small fundraiser each year benefiting a non-profit organization that funds life-saving medical treatment for pets of families who cannot afford the care.
