Amanda Grant founded USAdopt to help others benefit from the knowledge she gained during the adoption of her son.
She spent several years researching options and resources before beginning the actual adoption process. Then, while working full-time at a demanding career, Amanda went through the process, experiencing the many challenges and pressures people encounter when they decide to build a family through adoption.
Her joy at becoming a parent of an infant son confirmed Amanda’s determination to help others achieve their dream of adopting US-born children and helping those children become members of a loving, safe and permanent families. She continued to compile resources and review adoption professionals.
Based on this research, and her personal experience, Amanda developed adoption education tools to guide people through the process more quickly and confidently while reducing risk and cost. These tools form the basis of USAdopt. The organization combines Amanda’s life-long commitment to serving others with the management expertise gained during her 20+ year career as a senior officer in the institutional investment business.
Most recently, Amanda was Managing Director and Head of Institutional Client Service at Columbia Management. She was a member of the operating committee and managed the team that serviced the firm’s largest institutional clients, with responsibility for $52 billion of client assets and $80 million in revenue.
During her tenure, Amanda started a mentoring program for young professionals. She served on the board of StandUp for Kids, a national non-profit helping homeless and at-risk youth. And she began her ongoing involvement with the Adoptive Parents Committee, a support group serving the New York Metropolitan area.
