New Office Manager: Amanii Luper

  Amanii Luper is originally from San Jose and just returned to California from Austin, Texas where she resided since 1997.  Both places known for its technological savvy and social awareness, she developed a love for learning and sharing knowledge and innovative ideas.  Her passion, beginning in college at Chico State, developed into non-profit service, providing community relations activities as well as youth and higher education development as a career.  Her mission is to make a difference in the lives of others in myriad meaningful ways.

Amanii served at St. Edwards University in Austin, as Administrative Coordinator for Student Life, where, for several years, she contributed to various university-wide projects, committees and marketing campaigns, collaborated with on-and off-campus entities in the areas of service, entertainment and fundraising, and assisted in the coordination of many programs.  She is privileged to have mentored hundreds of students, built liaisons across the state and helped build understanding, growth and vibrancy within the campus community and beyond.

Amanii continued her career in the non-profit sector for the next several years, specifically in the development of youth, but also in faith-based and wellness services.  She has filled roles in counseling, teaching and coaching, project coordination, and most notably, as the Director of the Boys & Girls Club at a high school in Austin. An excellent steward and communicator of human and financial resources, Amanii continues to seek opportunities to manage projects that create vibrancy and market the unique qualities of community.

Amanii holds a BA in Music Recording Arts from California State University, Chico, and from St. Edward’s University, an MBA in Business Management and an Advanced Certificate in Sport Management.
