Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (June 2011): Amanda Vanderpool
Welcome to Macenstein‘s “Mac Chick of the Month”. Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely Amanda Vanderpool, a TV Host and Model, and of course, a die-hard Mac Chick!
Amanda Vanderpool is the quintessential “girl next door,” who loves all kinds of communication technology, new media, the world of entertainment, and sports, especially skiing. In the winter you will most likely find her cruising down the ski slopes in either Whistler, BC Canada or Colorado. Her love of both skiing and communication inspired Amanda to create her own “Savvy Snow Bunny” blog that she updates frequently during ski season, whenever she gets to hit the slopes. Her blog has been featured on SnowboardDaily.com and has become quite popular with skiers and snowboarders who follow Amanda’s ski journey on Twitter (@CheckOutAmanda). Beginning in the 6th grade, all the way through college, Amanda was on her school’s cheerleading squad, which she attributes to her passion for sports, and the discipline and determination it takes to become a successful athlete.
Amanda cheered for the Anaheim Ducks NHL team, then was voted the “NHL’s #1 Hottest Ice Girl” on Yahoo’s Bleacher Report blog.

Amanda has a remarkable enthusiasm for helping others. Her passionate personality and dedication to volunteering prompted Amanda to run her first marathon last December to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She trained for three months with Team in Training to prepare for the “Honolulu Full Marathon,” an experience she loves sharing with anyone who will listen. Amanda is also a HUGE animal rescue advocate and devotes much of her time volunteering at animal shelters and finding good homes for needy companion animals.
