Membership Manager Amanda Sanders ensures the growth and success of Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s Membership Program. Sanders is passionate about human interaction, as well as details, so she enjoys making sure that members have a wonderful experience learning about and connecting with the Garden. She started working at the Garden in 2020 in Guest Services and has since managed the Guest Services Program, Membership Program, and implementation of the reservation system in 2022. She loves learning about native plants and ecosystems but also working for an organization that is making a difference in the fight against climate change.
Sanders is originally from Solvang, California, and earned a bachelor’s degree in applied psychology from New York University. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her family and friends in nature and hanging out with her three cats: Goblin, Taiga, and Haru.
