Amanda Ruetz joined IHS in 2011. As an intern, she fell in love with the liberty movement and decided working towards a freer society was the career path for her! Before joining the Program Operations team, Amanda was on the Finance team at IHS and our sister organization, the Mercatus Center, for seven years. Her second (and perhaps most important) job is leading the joint IHS/Mercatus softball team as captain each summer!
Amanda is a native of Michigan and graduated from Hillsdale College where she studied history, business, and music. In her spare time, Amanda enjoys playing softball and volleyball, traveling, discovering new wineries and breweries, and spending time with friends.
