Amanda O’Neill

Nickname: Ace
Position: CA & OR Adventure Consultant
Hometown: St. Ignace, MI (yes, I’m a Yooper)
Favorite Food: Oooh, that’s a tough one! A Dutch oven lasagna never disappoints, but neither does pizza or sushi.
Favorite Music: It’s got to be music played with friends. If we happen to be around a campfire – even better!
Favorite thing about working for O.A.R.S.: I get to do life-changing work. I don’t know one person that’s ever gone on a river trip and been the same afterwards. I love getting to be a part of that experience.
Greatest Memory: My greatest memory has to be when I was invited to be a part of the O.A.R.S. Team. That moment opened the door for me to experience so many more incredible moments, both on and off the river, with O.A.R.S.
Other Hobbies: I love cooking, learning how to do new things, and daydreaming.
Special Talents: I can spin a good yarn, tell a pretty cony joke, make a decent IPA, and balance a spoon on my nose. Sometimes all at the same time.
Time with O.A.R.S.: Since 2013
