Amanda Hoffman - Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation

Amanda Hoffman

Amanda Hoffman is the owner of ADH Communications (formerly Motus Video Design), offering full-service communications consulting to help organizations trying to make the world a better place turn their target audience into advocates and activists for their cause. For over six years, Amanda worked as a communications and marketing consultant for the IT consulting firm, Booz Allen Hamilton, supporting multiple federal government clients. She left the firm in 2014 to pursue her entrepreneurial passion full time. In 2015, she joined the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) as their Communications Manager, but her passion for helping multiple causes she was passionate about lead her to eventually return to her consulting business. Originally from Boston, she graduated from American University in Washington, DC, with a BA in Journalism. Amanda is also a published author, editor and avid supporter of the arts, having danced competitively through her teens. She continued dancing in college, but at the age of 21, she was diagnosed with a desmoid tumor in her calf muscle. Since then, she has been through multiple treatments, including surgery and three chemotherapies, but still lives with the disease. She found DTRF in 2009 while searching for information on her rare condition and, eager to do what she could to help find a cure, volunteered her professional skills to the Foundation. Amanda was the Marketing Chair for the inaugural DTRF Running for Answers 5K and has served on the committee in a marketing and outreach consulting capacity each year since. Her current business was born out of her love for the work she was doing for DTRF. Since its launch in 2013, Amanda’s business has been an official sponsor for the Running for Answers 5K, filming and editing promotional videos for the event and DTRF. Outside of video production, Amanda advises the Foundation on PR, marketing, and social media management. She is honored to work with the wonderful and dedicated team at DTRF.
