After supporting JNBA Financial Advisors on a temporary basis starting in early 2020, Amanda Levasseur joined the team in a full-time capacity as an Investment & Business Operations Associate. Amanda spends much of her day working on a variety of projects gathering data and preparing information that all have the same goal of helping her colleagues address clients’ needs. During her time at JNBA, she has been particularly struck by the firm’s emphasis on values and how much it cares about team members and clients.

Amanda grew up in Maine, went to college in Massachusetts, and now calls Minnesota home. She received both her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Psychology and MBA in Social Change and Sustainability from Clark University in Worcester, Mass. While at Clark, she served for three years as Office Assistant to the Associate Dean of the College.

When not at work, Amanda lives in Minneapolis and spends her time hiking, biking, and running, as well as cooking — especially trying out vegetarian recipes.
