Amanda Whitmire

Amanda joined Compassion in 2017, bringing years of high-impact experience to the leadership of Compassion’s global Finance and Accounting team.

Amanda’s journey to Compassion began in Austin, Texas, where she worked for more than 17 years in accounting and finance with Whole Foods Market, Inc., and Ernst & Young, LLC.

Amanda is a certified public accountant and holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance from Baylor University and a master’s of accountancy from the University of Virginia. Her diverse experience has included auditing, Securities and Exchange Commission and statutory reporting, mergers and acquisitions, process reengineering, and treasury and financial analysis.

During her tenure within the business sector, Amanda’s heart was increasingly drawn towards applying her gifts for the good of a ministry. The opportunity to humbly serve Compassion and children in extreme poverty is a dream come true for Amanda.

She enjoys life and values time spent with friends and family, global travel, visiting Compassion’s field offices, new adventures and exotic cuisine.
