Amanda D'Addario is a dynamic professional specializing in special project management and design, boasting expertise in placemaking, wayfinding, environmental graphic design, and branding. Her journey in the field began with a stellar academic record, culminating in the completion of a Master of City & Regional Planning and a Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning and Design with honors from Rutgers University's prestigious Edward J.
