Prior to becoming Executive Director of the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters, Amanda Fontaine previously held positions as Director of Development and Sustainability for Families First for Mississippi and Executive Director of the Mississippi Burn Foundation.
In college, Fontaine was originally an accounting manager. However, in her sophomore year, she decided to switch to business management. She liked people and was not crazy about the idea of sitting behind a desk, she says.
Fontaine graduated from Delta State University in 1993 with a bachelor’s in business administration, with a focus in management, and in 1994 with her master’s degree in the same subject.
She worked as a claims representative with the Social Security Administration in Greenville from 1993 to 1996; a risk manager for Continue Care Home Health Inc. from 1996 to 1997; the director of human resources, marketing and education at The King’s Daughters Hospital from 1997 to 2000; the director of human resources at Delta Regional Medical Center from 2000 to 2001; and the director of physician network development at the hospital from 2001 to 2003. Fontaine also taught at DSU from 1994 to 2003.
