Operations Professional, Prismatic

Chicago, Illinois

Amanda Diiulis is an operations professional brought to Prismatic through a diverse collection of personal and professional experience.

In June of 2015, Amanda earned her bachelor’s in communication with a minor in management from Keene State College. After graduation, this native east-coaster pursued an opportunity in the midwest to participate in an AmeriCorps VISTA program with a focus on mental health services, older adult services and affordable housing. Her year-long term working in resource development further ignited her passion for nonprofit work, which drove her to enroll in DePaul University’s Nonprofit Management (M.N.M.) graduate program.

Simultaneously, Amanda worked in higher education where she helped facilitate 300+ students to be placed at various Chicago-based nonprofits in volunteer and internship roles. After achieving her graduate degree in May of 2018, Amanda followed her enthusiasm for animal welfare to a local Chicago rescue where she worked for two years as an adoption center client liaison. Amanda is driven to serve Prismatic’s mission through quality execution of operational practices, and exceptional communication with our stakeholders.
