Amanda Zinn head shot

As the leader of Leadership Baltimore County, Amanda Zinn plays the key role in the organization’s mission to bring high achievers with diverse perspectives together to educate them about the challenges and opportunities in Baltimore County. After graduating from the organization's 10-month course on leadership, alumni are inspired to use their talents to improve the county.

Among the more than 1,300 graduates are politicians like Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. and Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates Adrienne Jones.

“What I love about this organization is getting to know amazing leaders,” Zinn says. “The people that go through our program are curious, brilliant and dedicated to improving the quality of life for all. They genuinely care about the people of our community.”

Though she would never say it herself, the same sentiment describes Amanda Zinn.
