Amanda Kondrat'yev

Amanda Kondrat'yev grew up a Navy brat, but has lived in Pensacola for almost 15 years. She is married with two children, and she is graduating the University of West Florida in May with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree in Management Information Systems.

Amanda is an outspoken activist involved with the community, and is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the Humanists of West Florida. At the university, Amanda has served as President of the Association for Information Systems student chapter and as Senator for the Student Government Association representing the College of Business. She currently work as a IT Business Analyst and likes to moonlight as an independent journalist/blogger.

Amanda has also written for this blog under the nom de plum (or perhaps nom de guerre) of Janet Yang.


  1. Brat is a good word to use.

  2. Clearly anonymous has never had the honor of living in a family of a service member. Childish.

  3. Amanda - I'm sorry if I spooked you when I donated to your Science/Dino Advocacy fund. I happened to read about the sorry story on one of the few (only?) Christian blogs I can stand to read. As an atheist Floridian with strong feelings against creationism, the story resonated and I donated. (I can quote almost verbatim parts of the decision Judge Jones wrote in the Dover, PA ID case.) I don't want the crazies to stalk me online, so I'm not saying too much, either. Just wanted you to know.

  4. I can't guarantee that Amanda monitors this page.

    1. Thank you, Carole! I didn't realize you are in Florida too. I hope you got my previous thank you I sent from the gofundme page. :)
