Amanda Opperman

Amanda Opperman earned her PhD in Education with an emphasis in Social Justice from the Claremont Graduate University / San Diego State University joint doctoral program. She has been an adjunct faculty member at San Diego State University, California University of Management and Sciences, and Claremont Lincoln University. Amanda put herself through college by taking out too many student loans and by working as a telemarketer, a bartender, an ESL teacher, and a camp counselor. A San Diego native, Amanda moved to the Bay Area in 2017 and now calls the East Bay her home. She is the proud mom to her two fur babies, a black lab/collie mix named Nathan and a miniature schnauzer named Monster. When she is not working at PGS as our Associate Vice President of Admissions, she can be found binge-watching 90s TV shows and reading re-reading one of her all time favorites, Noam Chomsky's "On Anarchism."
