Amanda Heath Stubbert graduated from Seattle Pacific University in 1995 with a double major in theatre and psychology. Already liking what she saw here, Amanda began working for SPU right after graduation, directing the University Players touring group, booking gigs for them and other SPU groups performing off campus.
In 2013, the native of Aloha, Oregon, became assistant director of campus experience and events for Undergraduate Admissions, where she expanded the visit program and created an inspiring encounter with SPU for all prospective students and their families. In 2015, she became assistant director of alumni and parent relations, and then after a brief stint as the interim director of that department, she was named the director of alumni and parent relations in early 2018.
“I love planning fun, interesting, and creative new ways for my fellow alums to connect with and benefit from our alma mater!” says Stubbert. It helps with alumni event planning that she has herself and her husband, and their daughters, Hannah and Eden, as alumni “clients” and future Falcons. She is married to Corbett Stubbert ’97, executive pastor and operations manager at Seattle’s Westside Church.
The Stubberts are volunteers with WorldCOMP Kenya, an organization which serves in many ways from facilitating medical teams to schools for children living in slums. Amanda is on WorldCOMP’s board, and Corbett’s service includes trips to Kenya where he supports construction projects and relationship building.
