Amanda Small. Amanda graduated from the University of Toronto achieving a Bachelor of Science, with a specialty in Neuroscience, in 2007. She immediately started working in the family business, where she learned about the insurance industry from a claims perspective. After spending 5 years in property and auto claims, Amanda obtained her RIBO license, allowing her to sell home, auto and business insurance. Naturally she gravitated towards a position which allowed her to work with people and help them protect what’s most important to them- their life, family, savings and ability to earn an income. In 2015 Amanda obtained her Canadian Risk Management Certification and in 2016 her LLQP, allowing her to help her clients with all aspects of insurance.

When Amanda isn’t working, she enjoys a playing good game of golf, pool, baseball or traveling any chance she gets! Born and raised in Durham Region, you’ll often find her active in the neighbourhood community or running the trails along the lake in Pickering, where she resides.
