Amanda founded Ecotelligent Homes in 2009 to apply her engineering knowledge to her passion of environmental stewardship. She left her mechanical engineering position in the automotive industry for entrepreneurship and hasn’t looked back since growing Ecotelligent Homes from a home based part time hobby to an award winning home performance company with a talented staff. Amanda is a proud graduate of Kettering University and a licensed builder in the State of Michigan. Her green certifications have included: Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) Certified Energy Manager, LEED-AP, and Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analyst. Her desire to promote the energy efficiency industry extends beyond Ecotelligent Homes, as she is the Vice President of the Michigan Energy Efficiency Contractors Association (MEECA) and a board member of Michigan Saves. Her favorite part of the job is when she gets to be out in the field either interfacing with a new customer to help them improve their comfort and enjoy their home, or working along side her dedicated crew because its energizing to see others take so much pride in the work they do and watch them grow in the trade she trained them in. Outside of work, Amanda enjoys organic gardening and hosting parties to share healthy meals with family and friends.
