Amanda has been a certified PA since 2009 and performed her first autopsy in 2005. Prior to arriving at Yale in 2018, Amanda worked in Surgical Pathology at Middlesex Health where she grossed all of their surgical specimens ranging from small to highly complex, and performed their autopsies. She had particular experience in breast, GYN, and GI oncologic pathology. She has experience performing autopsies at major medial centers, community hospitals, and medical examiner systems: The Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN), The Massachusetts General Hospital, Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (CT), Eastern Maine Medical Center, Columbia University, and Hospital of St. Raphael. She has had a special interest in autopsy pathology and had the opportunity to join Yale as the Autopsy Manager and perform autopsies full time. Amanda and her team of PAs and technicians are responsible for teaching autopsy pathology to the pathology residents in various stages of their 3-4 year AP/CP residencies in the department.
