Amanda Cochran

Owner, Sylvan Learning Center Wilmington and Jacksonville
 
As the new owner of the local Syl­van Learn­ing Center, Cochran likes to keep up with education news.
 
Websites she regularly checks for work include county and N.C. Department of Public Instruction websites.
 
Her favorite magazine is Our State. “Carolina has so many trea­sures within our state borders and I love finding local shops and eateries,” she said.
 
Cochran likes to listen to Entre­Leadership for work.
 
“I believe that in order to run an effective business and team, I first need to be an effective leader. This podcast is great for leadership development.”
 
Another go-to podcast is This Grit and Grace Life, which touches on topics such as motherhood, marriage, working moms and more.
 
A favorite to re­watch on TV is Gilmore Girls.
 
She is currently reading “The 360 Degree Leader” where she is learn­ing more about leadership.
 
For pleasure, I enjoy Nicholas Sparks, Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers, to name a few. I am also a huge fan of children's books, especially Sharon Creech.”
 
As a Disney fan, Cochran likes to follow Smart Moms Plan Disney on Insta­gram as well as Humans of New York on Face­book.
