Amanda O'Rourke

Amanda O’Rourke is a Partner at Greenwood Ohlund, a mid-sized firm in North Seattle. She works with closely-held businesses, nonprofits and individuals, providing traditional accounting and custom consulting services. Born and raised in Washington, with a stop in CA for her undergraduate degree, Amanda has spent her professional life in Seattle. She has been an active member of the WSCPA including the nonprofit committee and for the last 5 years, the board of directors. Board service has allowed Amanda opportunities for meaningful work with organizations whose mission is about a greater good. In addition to her work at the WSCPA, she has been a longstanding board member for the Seafair Foundation and a member of 501 Commons Finance Committee. Amanda earned her BA in Accounting from the University of San Diego. Accounting courses proved to be a more natural fit than surfing. Once back in Seattle she received a certificate of Nonprofit Management from the University of Washington. Amanda lives in Ballard with her husband and two kids. She tries to garden and appreciates any excuse to be outside. Occasionally she gets back up on a surf board but accounting remains her preferred day job.
