Amanda Lepinski

After her five-year stint going to college and living in New York City where she interned at Redbook, CosmoGirl!, and Stuff magazine, Amanda came back to Minnesota where she could geek out on grammar as the associate editor of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. She confesses that although New York City was her first love, Minneapolis is her true love. When she’s not attending the Twin Cities’ hottest parties for the magazine’s RSVP section, editing copy, or freelancing for Viking magazine, she’s catching classic movies at The Heights Theater, walking along the riverfronts, enjoying her favorite patio restaurants, and searching for the latest beauty trends and DIY projects online and on Pinterest. You can also mingle with her at a Minnesota Magazine Publishing Association event, where she co-chairs on the networking committee, connecting Minnesota local publishing professionals to one another.
