Vivayic Talent:

Amanda Ball

Learning Designer

“Taking an idea and breathing life into it is incredibly fulfilling. I love working as a team of driven and creative educators who can transform a vision into a durable learning experience.”

From New Mexico and back again. After earning her master’s in Public Affairs at the University of Missouri, Amanda returned to New Mexico. She also has degrees in Agricultural Business & Economics and Managerial Leadership which is a perfect fit for her role on the Vivayic team.

Her accomplishments range from developing leadership workshops for college and youth programs (with a particular focus on bridging generational gaps), facilitating state officer programs for National FFA, serving as a camp director and trainer for FFA and 4-H programs in New Mexico and Missouri, and organizing week-long professional development seminars on the state, national, and international level for New Mexico Agricultural Leadership.

She’s done more, trust us. But that’ll give you a good idea of Amanda’s passion for building learner-centric curriculum.

With to-do lists to keep her organized, Amanda makes complex projects look easy. She strategically evaluates her options, finds common themes, presents her decision-making process clearly, and casts a vision of how all the pieces connect.

As a faithful supporter “in the stands,” Amanda loves cheering on others to success. Her most proud moments come from helping behind-the-scenes, witnessing someone’s personal growth as they shine in their strengths.

Give her a slow weekend, and you’ll find Amanda tackling a craft project (She loves scrapbooking!), enjoying the pool, journaling, planning her next trip, spending time with friends, attending church, and preparing for her week at a local coffee shop in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
