We are excited to announce Amanda Kostic as the new Partnership Manager for the PCA-Seattle Chapter. As a Seattle native, she hopes to give back to the community she grew up in, mostly being responsible for prospecting, developing, and closing partnership opportunities.
Prior to PCA, she served as an Account and Tournament Production Manager at Five Ultimate, LLC. She focused on customer service, tournament production, and sales in the sport of Ultimate Frisbee and led her staff in sales in 2018. She gained more fundraising and marketing experience with YMCA of Greater Seattle where she also currently serves as a personal trainer.
She attended the University of Washington where she studied Germanics and Anthropology. She played ultimate Frisbee where her team won the National Championship in 2012. She also competed in the USA Ultimate U23 team, winning the World Championship in 2013. She is currently an Assistant Coach for the Ultimate Frisbee team at UW and is a volunteer and mentor with the All Girl Everything Ultimate Program. In 2018, Amanda coached the Nathan Hale High School (Seattle) Girls Ultimate Team to the 2018 National Championships in Rockford, Illinois. They won 12-11.
Outside of PCA and coaching, she loves to boulder, sing, go on road trips, and spend time with her very excitable pup named Stilly. She has played competitive club ultimate for the past few years, but is currently enjoying taking a year off to focus on new and exciting hobbies like bouldering.
“I’m beyond excited and proud to cultivate positive change around both coaching and participating in sports in my hometown,” shares Kostic. “I believe sports teach you the necessary skills of life! I’m looking forward to inspiring the future generation of athletes and coaches!”
