Amanda Poses

Austin, Texas, USA

Amanda is a planner by nature who adores the details and lives by the motto, “Don’t just meet expectations. Exceed them.”
With international family trips to destinations like Moscow, Milan, Paris, and London as a child, Amanda’s love for travel started young. These adventures coupled with her Manhattan lifestyle ignited an appreciation for art, fine dining, wine, and cultures different from her own. Prior to diving into the travel industry, Amanda’s 20+ year career in retail, fashion, and events thrived because she consistently surpassed the needs of her clientele, anticipating the small things that would make a big difference in their experience.

Amanda was inspired to a pivot into becoming a luxury travel advisor after realizing that her sophisticated tastes and knack for detail would align with SmartFlyer’s mission to create exceptional client experiences. Since relocating to Austin, she has continued to bring her wealth of personal travel knowledge to each and every itinerary she works on. Amanda specializes in family travel, as well as high-touch itineraries in destinations across Southeast Asia, Europe, and beyond. But, she’s equally equipped to help make that domestic road trip, beach vacation to Mexico or, perhaps the Caribbean (did someone say St Barth’s?) extra memorable thanks to her relationships with hoteliers in every corner of the globe.

Favorite Memory

An afternoon on a boat with Valentina that ended with a private tour of Passalacqua just one month before opening. Listening to her tell the story of how she curated the design, choosing every single detail – an afternoon to remember! A true masterpiece.
