Meet the Team

Amanda Trickey

Owner | CEO

Amanda has been in the marketing field since 2012 but her entrepreneurial spirit started long before that. As a little girl you could find her selling lemonade or catching lady bugs to sell door to door to the neighbors. 

After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2011, she spent time working in the marketing industry while growing her digital marketing knowledge and creative editing skills. She gained valuable experience in serving a variety of industries including business to business, medical, home services, non-profits, and many more. 

In 2022 she decided to combine her childhood dream of becoming a business owner and her passion for digital marketing and founded Modern Marketing & Media, LLC.

When she isn’t serving her clients, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband, two boys and their dogs. She is often working on a home improvement project and loves interior decorating and design, gardening and traveling.
