I’m Amanda Kennedy, the founder and content creator behind The Amanda Kennedy Blog.
I started this blog in the middle of a VERY twisty road to an unexpected career in Tech and Manufacturing. I studied Genetics as an Undergrad at Rutgers University, where I also played Division 1 College Soccer, and followed it with a Master’s in Genomics at The University of Tennessee. Years in the lab, and a combined curiosity about skincare led me to start using my scientific background (and access to research publications) to start decoding product labels. My passion quickly developed into sharing the insights I learned about beauty products – and The Amanda Kennedy Blog was born!
After years spent in the manufacturing industry, I now work for a software company as their CPG (consumer product good) specialist – meaning alllllll of the people I work with are making the products I’m so obsessed with – skincare, haircare, makeup, etc. You will see me traveling constantly as a result.
I love to share my passion, scientific knowledge, and industry insights about beauty products with everyone, and truly believe that taking time for self-care can not only change the way a person looks, but can also change the way the feel about themselves. If you stick around, you’ll see beauty reviews, clothing that makes me feel like a bad-ass, as well as food, fitness and travel favorites as I explore my home in Knoxville, and the rest of the world!
When I’m not working, you can find me trying new workouts, cooking up new recipes, hanging out with my 2 dogs, or exploring new cities with my husband. I hope you’ll follow along!
