Please join us in giving a warm welcome to the two newest members of our staff at our headquarters in Sunnyvale, California:
Recently moving to the Bay Area from Atlanta, Georgia, Amanda joins ReSurge after completing her M.S. in International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology. While in graduate school, Amanda worked for a refugee resettlement agency and spent a summer studying in Seoul, Korea. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Armstrong Atlantic State University and interned with the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Amanda looks forward to collaborating with the development team and streamlining database management processes and procedures to better serve our mission. When not in the office, Amanda can be found exploring local hiking trails and beaches with her dog.
Jay Dumanian, Medical Programs and Logistics Coordinator
Jay just moved back to the Bay Area and joined ReSurge this month after receiving a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. At Dartmouth, he organized and led climbing trips with the Dartmouth Outing Club, volunteered as a campus EMT, and assisted with research on attention and stereotype perception in a social psychology lab. Originally from Los Altos, Jay is excited to be contributing to ReSurge's public health mission and to be back near family, friends, and Yosemite on the West Coast.
Welcome to ReSurge, Amanda and Jay!
