She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English in Spanish in 2002 from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. She spent two years working in undergraduate admissions at Wittenberg before pursuing her Master of Education degree in Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership at William & Mary in 2006. Upon completing her graduate program, she worked as a development officer at the Arizona State University Foundation in Tempe, Arizona. Amanda returned to William & Mary in 2009 to join the Mason School of Business. As Assistant Dean, her responsibilities include setting strategy for the admissions team, managing the admissions and scholarship committee and extensive domestic and international recruitment.

Fabrício Prado is associate professor of history at William & Mary, where he teaches classes on Colonial Latin America and the Atlantic World. Prado is the author of Colônia do Sacramento: o extremo sul da América portuguesa (2002); and Edge of Empire: Atlantic Networks and Revolution in Bourbon Rio de la Plata (University of California Press, 2015), which was translated into Spanish as El Borde del Império: redes atlánticas y revolución en el Río de la plata Borbónico (Prometeo, 2021). Fabrício has been a research fellow at the Instituto de Historia Nacional y Americana Emilio Ravignani, Buenos Aires, a member of the class of 2008 of the International Seminar for the History of the Atlantic World at Harvard University, and an exchange faculty fellow at the School of History at the University of Saint Andrews, Scotland.

His current book project is tentatively titled Inter-American Connections: Capitalism, Slavery, and the Making of Independent South America, which examines the commercial linkages connecting the US port cities to Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay during the Age of Atlantic Revolutions.
