Amanda Henderson

Research Support Specialist
Amanda first came to RMBL in 2010 with the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. From 2010 to 2017, she worked for RMBL as a research technician and graduate research assistant. Upon graduating from the University of Arizona with a Master of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, she became a full-time Crested Butte resident and RMBL researcher on a Lawrence Berkeley National Lab led project. These collaborative positions led her to her current role at RMBL, which began in 2023. Today, Amanda’s work involves supporting the spatial data program, providing GIS/GPS coordination, and assisting with research administration. Amanda brings over fifteen years of on-the-ground field experience through numerous roles at field stations across the US and abroad. She is unmatched in her ability to educate new scientists on species and ecosystem interactions that take place in the East River valley. Originally from Clackamas, OR, when Amanda is not bringing RMBL science forward, she is out hiking and cross-country skiing with her dog, enjoying the natural beauty and access to the wilderness that only Crested Butte can provide.
