Amanda Reagan has been at the forefront of marketing analytics and tracking for over 15 years.

She has been a breakout session leader on call analytics for ServiceMaster Clean as well as Steamatic International at their international annual meetings. She was sent to consult with franchisee locations in Boston, Maine, and San Diego.
