Amanda Zimmerman has worked with Arcadia's programs since 2005. While obtaining her B.A. in Communication with a specialization in Public Relations from Rowan University, she spent a semester studying abroad at Macquarie University in Australia. After graduation, she taught English in the small town of Hidaka, Japan for two years with The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program.
