Welcome to Amanda Krotke-Crandall!

Amanda Krotke-CrandallWe are excited to welcome Amanda Krotke-Crandall into the CCGRS community as our new program coordinator. Amanda is new to the WSU campus, having moved to Pullman with her husband in August from Fayetteville, Arkansas. She attended a small liberal arts school, Hendrix College, for an undergraduate degree. Her master’s in social work is from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. She is currently ABD in public policy with an emphasis in children and family policy. Amanda enjoys spending time with her two dogs, a brilliant but aged Alaskan sled dog and a slightly neurotic Ori Pei, aged but not quite as decrepit. Amanda is excited to get to know all the CCGRS students. She looks forward to helping you find answers to questions about applications, scheduling, and graduation.
