I am Amanda Ye, a distance runner, bakery enthusiast, fried chicken fan, IPA drinker, coffee snob, plant lover, and organization effectiveness consultant.

I moved to the U.S over a decade ago from Shenzhen, China. Currently, my husband Josh, our cat Zola and I live in Chicago, where you can often find me running on the 606, and Lakefront Trail.
