Staff Member: Amanda Dwyer
I have been a part of this community since I was in middle school, which is when my family moved here from the Midwest. As a teen, I was active in Teen Choir and the Life Teen program. I started working at St. Thomas More in 1999 assisting in the office. While attending classes at UNLV, I stayed active at church and was eventually offered the Life Teen Assistant position. I married the love of my life; Steven, in 2001, and we ended up becoming the co-Directors of Life Teen. For almost 14 years, we enjoyed working together and leading the program. During that time, we welcomed two amazing children; our son in 2008 and our daughter in 2012. As our family grew, my time and work started shifting over to other areas at church. In the beginning of 2019, Steven and I made the difficult decision to close out our leadership with the Life Teen program. It was then that I was given new responsibilities and officially became the Director of Communications. I truly love the people of St. Thomas More and feel blessed that I get to do what I do each day.
I love music, movies, drawing/coloring, swimming, supporting all of our children's extracurricular activities, digital media/design, shopping, baking, traveling, animals, the Las Vegas Aviators, and the Vegas Golden Knights! I am also passionate about Autism Acceptance (our son was diagnosed with Autism when he was younger).
