It’s Amanda! Originally from Queens, New York, this Laner made the coastal switch and now lives in Los Angeles, CA! Not only is she 5'10” with super curly hair but she’s also seven different nationalities! Wow! Let’s learn a bit more, shall we?

When you're not shining as Laner of the Week...what are you doing?!

I'm either coaching boxing and teaching swim lessons to kids OR.. putting in self-tapes and creating content!
