MEET THE HEROES

Amanda Cassidy

Registered Nurse, New York

Amanda grew up in Connecticut, and now is an ER and trauma nurse who works in the heart of NYC’s famous public hospital, Bellevue.

She and her team care for those who are often turned away elsewhere. Her passion is getting people equal and quality healthcare, regardless of race or ability to pay. She has been active in marches and protests fighting these causes.

While fighting the pandemic, Amanda has postponed her wedding twice! In what little free time she has, you can find Amanda cooking and Face Timing. She has used her social media to educate others about the coronavirus and disparities in healthcare.

In her fiancé, Robert’s, words: “Amanda might not think she did a lot, but she’s remained dedicated in her beliefs, never wavering against unpopular opinions.”

A.J. Klein Jewelers will join us in honoring Amanda with this piece.
Thank you to Adam Roberts, her fiancé, for nominating her.

THE HERO’S GIFT
14K Popcorn Gemstone Pendant

WHY THIS PIECE
We thank Amanda for her dedication and her passion to giving back to those who are sometimes the least fortunate in their community with our 14k Gold and Amethyst Popcorn Pendant. Amanda works with PPE every day, so she needs a piece that can be worn with all her other layers. The 14k gold is a perfect autumn color, that reminds us of the change of seasons, and the amethyst contains healing properties all of us need these days.
