ISACS Member - Spraoi
ISACS Member - Spraoi St Patrick's Parade 2017 | Photographer Graham Cullen

Welcome to the team!

She's survived 2 months in lock-down as part of the ISACS team and now she is here to stay. 
We are very happy to officially welcome our new Company Administrator: Amanda Usher!  

Amanda graduated from Dublin City University in 2011 with a higher-level degree in Contemporary Culture and Society. The following year, she went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Public Relations from Dublin Institute of Technology.

Since graduating, she has worked predominately in the IT sector, working as a Business Development Executive, and a Technical advisor among others. She is no stranger to business and has worked with clients that are household names both in Ireland and Europe.

Amanda has always been drawn to creative practices and in 2018 she decided to return to education to study her passion - fine art, focusing on developing her skills in painting in particular. She is due to receive her degree in Art and Design from Carlow Institute of Technology in 2020.

Amanda is thrilled to be part of the ISACS family and is looking forward to helping take the network forward.

The excitement is mutual and we are very curious to see what adventures lay ahead!
