Portrait of a GFFer: Amanda Kalescky

Meet Amanda Kalescky! Amanda joined us in 2007 and is a Senior Project Coordinator!

“My favorite thing about working at GFF is the thoughtful and kind people I work with. Everyone is intentional in what they do which leads to not only great design work, but also a workplace that is collaborative, supportive, and just a fun place to work!”

Outside of work, Amanda loves supporting her kids whether that is speaking at career day, leading the Girl Scout Troop, or cheering them on at their sporting events. She tries to give back to the community as much as she can through PTA service, serving on the board of Wesley Rankin Community Center in West Dallas, and through various other committees and volunteer positions. Amanda says, “My most happy place is our family lake house in Hot Springs, Arkansas which I helped redesign so that the whole extended family can come together – 9 bedrooms, 5 baths, and the most amazing covered front porch!”

A fun fact about Amanda is that she is an award-winning flower arranger through her local garden club! She has been entering the annual flower show since she was a little girl!

Thank you for all that you do Amanda, we are so lucky to have you!
