Amanda Martinez Laurel (she/her) is a proud Latina with a decade of experience in building relationships with communities, organizations, and corporations in the U.S. and abroad.

As a Junior Editor at Good Good Good, Amanda writes, strategizes, optimizes, and edits engaging print and digital content. She conducts original reporting, research, and interviews with esteemed activists, social enterprises, and nonprofit organizations.
Her passion for sustainability and love of thrifting led her to launch her own small business, The Slow Seeker. In less than two years, Amanda diverted over 700 pieces of secondhand clothing, accessories, and home goods from landfills!
She’s known to buy one-way plane tickets, show you unsolicited photos of her Great Pyrenees-mix (Duffy!), and finds true joy spending an entire day sifting through her local thrift shop!
