Amanda Taylor shipwrecked!

Amanda Taylor arrived in Sitka  from Minnesota as an AmeriCorps volunteer about three years ago. She immediately felt a connection with the community the fit right in working at Braveheart…so she stayed! We’re lucky to have Amanda in the community and we all got to know her a little better when she agreed to share her wishlist if she was shipwrecked on a “dessert-ed” island and had only ten songs and one dessert to fill her days.
