AMANDA MARR, Director of Marketing & Communications, Sevierville Chamber of Commerce
Amanda Marr has been part of the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce team for 17 years and serves as the director of marketing and communications. She loves telling the world about Sevierville and discovering the unique stories our community’s businesses and people have to tell.
No stranger to the dance floor, Amanda grew up clogging and performing around the southeast – which let her meet many interesting people and have amazing experiences.
Amanda and her husband Shane have two fantastic children – Max, who is an outgoing 10-year-old determined to be a YouTube sensation, and Ava, an energetic kindergartener who loves to boogie. When the family is not busy juggling work and school, they enjoy hanging out together, cooking, painting, listening to music, and dancing.
Amanda is so excited to be dancing again and is honored to help United Way of Sevier County as part of Dancing with the Stars.
