“Amanda lives for the difficult task. She can take care of business!”

Retired Judge Stephen B. Ables, 216th District Court, Kerr County, Texas

 

Amanda Hill graduated magna cum laude from Texas Tech University with a degree in public relations and a minor in English. While at Tech, Amanda sang alto in the University Choir, was a member of the university honors program, worked as a resident assistant in the campus dorms, and worked her way through school as a youth director at two different Methodist churches. 

Following graduation, Amanda managed a large-scale compliance project for Lubbock, Texas. The program quickly impressed state leaders, who viewed the city’s protocol as a model for others to follow. When Lubbock was asked by the State of Texas to present the city’s successes to some of Texas’ largest municipal governments, including Dallas, Houston and Austin, Lubbock officials turned to Amanda to tour the state and tout its success. 

Amanda then attended Texas Tech University School of Law, where she was active in Law Review as a staff member and articles editor. While at Tech Law, Amanda interned for then Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen, instilling in her a deep respect for the judiciary.  She published her first article in the 2001 Texas Tech Law Review.

Amanda then worked as a staff attorney for the United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs. She saw her position at the VA as an opportunity not only to work for an organization with a nation-wide reach, but as a chance to combine the legal skills she learned in school with the business management skills she acquired from her practical experiences. Her responsibilities required her to balance a heavy medical malpractice and employment law caseload while serving as in-house counsel to several major VA hospitals and related agency support operations. In addition to these responsibilities, the VA Office of General Counsel in Washington, D.C. asked Amanda to chair a nation-wide work group in order to implement a best practices exchange program to be used by VA attorneys across the country. Amanda earned commendation from the VA’s Office of General Counsel for her efforts. Amanda also established a legal internship program and was appointed team leader in her region for the collection of insurance premiums as part of the VA’s Medical Care Cost Recovery program. 

Amanda was General Counsel and Director of Patient and Provider Relations for a large multi-specialty medical clinic in Austin, Texas, where she oversaw compliance, peer review, and in-house legal matters.  She recently created an extensive training program for physicians called "The Physician's Academy" that dealt with physician marketing, efficiency, reducing burn-out, and dealing with difficult patients.  The training was converted to a documentary and had its world premiere in Austin, Texas, in 2011.  She is passionate about working with doctors, making sure they are well informed about legal risks and can move forward toward successful patient practices.

Amanda is now the Chief Legal Officer for CommUnityCare, a Federally-Qualifed Health Center in Austin, Texas.

Television

Despite almost a million applicants across the country, Amanda Hill was selected to be one of the final sixteen candidates to be an apprentice to Martha Stewart on NBC’s “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” in fall of 2005. The Apprentice experience gave Amanda a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use her creative talents as well as her business skills in the heart of New York City. She learned many lessons from Martha as well as her competitors on the show.
