Toastmaster, Amanda M. Keen

Amanda Keen has been involved in the online Wheel of Time community for over 15 years. While she has enjoyed the many spirited discussions and debates she has occasionally found herself in, her main focus has been the communities and the charities. She has been involved in various aspects of the administration at http://tarvalon.net for many years, including the role of Keeper of Chronicles/Chief Operations Officer, and is still on their Board of Directors. Along with Karen C. Rush and Shannan Lieb, she helped found and still helps run Waygate Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity that works with authors. She attends conventions for their Wheel of Time tracks and has participated in several panels. However, she is a bad fan: she has only read the Wheel of Time once.

Amanda is our JordanCon 2017 Toastmaster.
