Meet this West Virginia Wonder Woman, Amanda Easter, and many more that are creating a better West Virginia with their can-do attitudes and Mountain State spirit.
Blessed to Be
Amanda Easter graduated from Marshall University with a degree in graphic design. When she began her career in marketing, she kept her parents’ advice in mind: “Do it like it’s your name on the door.” And she did, and then it was.
In 2007, Easter founded Inside Out Creative, an advertising agency dedicated to helping businesses achieve their branding goals. Creating materials that are used internally and externally to creatively showcase one’s business is the thought behind the name Inside Out Creative but, as Easter explains, her faith played a huge part in it as well. “Jesus can transform a person from the inside out, as He works on me daily to bring the best out of me.”
Volunteering and service have been an integral part of Easter’s life. She spent 10 years serving as a lead chair and providing marketing support for Girls Night Out. In 2018, her faith took her to Thailand with Women at Risk International. And last year, she was recognized as one of five Women on a Mission by Union Mission Ministries for her work with the Women’s Ministry Lead Team at Bible Center Church in Charleston.
