Amanda is The Gardens of Cedar Rapids' new Administrative Assistant/Office Manager!

She lives here in Cedar Rapids with her husband and two boys, Caleb (9) and Tyler (8). Their family is completed by their dog Jack. Amanda loves to see new movies, go for bike rides, and taking her boys to Disney World every year. We are excited to have her on our team!
Catherine was born on April 8th, 1924 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Her mother was a homemaker and her father owned a grocery store. She grew up with 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Her parents immigrated from Lebanon at a young age so growing up Catherine enjoyed Lebanese traditions and cuisine, sharing them with her own family when she got older. Catherine married Nick Abodeely when she was 30 years old and the couple have two sons, David and Tim. They have two granddaughters and two great granddaughters. Over the years Catherine has enjoyed being active in church, playing cards with her husband's cousins, cooking Lebanese food, and becoming an accomplished painter. Join us on Wednesday, July 25th at 2:00 pm to see Catherine demonstrate making one of her favorite dishes, Tabbouleh Salad!
