Meet Amanda

Amanda is one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met – and she helped us make the connections we needed in order to successfully raise the issues we work on at the Texas Legislature.  Her advice regarding strategy was always spot on.  We look forward to continuing to work with her!

Deborah Fowler, Executive Director, Texas Appleseed

Amanda List is a fifth-generation Texan born in Denton, but has called various cities across the state “home.”  She graduated with honors from the University of North Texas (UNT) with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a minor in Communications. She then became a Golden Key International Honour Society member.

The daughter of a  veteran public school teacher and school  administrator, Amanda is passionate about the potential of good government. Her strong work ethic comes from running a small business for seven years, and her experience as the Vice-President of Advocacy with a start-up state trade association helped hone her craft as a government affairs strategist.  Amanda is married to Dr. Patrick List, a physician for the University of Texas at Austin.

Residing in central Austin, she is minutes from her other home, the Texas State Capitol. When not advocating, she enjoys traveling, playing tennis, and rooting for the Dallas Cowboys. Amanda is dedicated to giving back to the community and proudly serves on the Central Texas Leadership Board for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and as the Vice-Chair of Public Policy Awareness for Autism Lifeline Links, a non-profit helping Bexar County families with much-needed autism services.
