Our Team


We’re the board of directors.

Jamie Kuenzi

Jamie and Amanda became close friends while working at Eli Lilly and Company in 2009. In fact, Amanda spent a long weekend “babysitting” Jamie’s children while they were out of town. Friendship turned into family and Amanda lovingly became “Auntie Amanda” and was the little sister Jamie never had. They often met daily at Colectivo to discuss relationships, work, local happenings and dreams. It was at one morning coffee that Amanda received the email that welcomed her to the Lilly Hearts Abroad program. She went to Ghana, Africa and this is where she developed a desire to explore the vast world around her. Jamie hopes to support Amanda’s family in carrying out #25 on her bucket list and is honored to serve as President of the Amanda Geissler Memorial Foundation.

Tom Seaholm

Growing up in Chippewa Falls, Tom and his brother were raised by their parents and grew a love of sports. Playing baseball, football and basketball was a good part of Tom’s life, where he learned many of the skills that have taken with him into the business world. Graduating from UW-La Crosse with a Finance degree, he began his career working in financial services and transitioned that into a commercial banking career for the past 8 years. Tom is currently the Vice President of Business Banking for WNB Financial in the Eau Claire area, and am leading our growth by being the trusted financial advisor and premier regional partner for small businesses locally.
Tom has three wonderful children: Addy, Brady, and Rylee. Their family dog Arlo rounds out the daily chaos, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. When not at work, they can usually be found at a local field or gym watching and/or coaching the kids’ teams. If it’s not a sporting event, they enjoy camping with many family and friends, playing golf and traveling as much as they can.
Tom is proud and honored to be a part of Amanda’s Foundation. As neighbors to Amanda’s parents, Jeff and Cheryl, the Seaholm family has gotten to know the family very well and enjoyed sharing so many great memories and unfortunately some of the worst ones. The Geissler family’s love of each other has come through during this tough time and is being carried on through this wonderful foundation. Amanda’s desire to help others will continue to be this group’s driving passion and Tom can’t wait to see the wonderful things we’re able to do in her honor.

Lindsey Carlyle

Lindsey is Amanda’s little sister who looked up to her sister in all aspects of life. Lindsey lives in California with her husband (Derek), daughter (Ayla), and son (Hayes) and is a high school science teacher. Lindsey, like Amanda, graduated from UW-Stout where they both played basketball and earned their undergraduate degrees. Amanda’s sense of adventure, mental toughness, and acceptance of others are just a few of a long list of things Lindsey always admired in her sister. Lindsey is honored to be checking #25 off her sister’s bucket list, and will continue to spread Amanda’s light with as many people as she can through the work of the Amanda Geissler Memorial Foundation.

Cheryl Geissler

Cheryl is Amanda’s Mom and recently moved to Vista, California to be closer to her grandchildren, Lindsey, and Derek. Cheryl has a bachelors degree in Accounting, is a licensed CPA and is a Accounts Manager for UCSD. Amanda encouraged us to see the best in every situation, she could find the good in everything and everyone. Amanda inspired everyone to dream a little bigger, be a little kinder and to show up for life every day. Cheryl thanked God every day that she was the lucky one chosen to be Amanda’s Mom. To honor Amanda, Cheryl will try to spread kindness and light every day!

Heidi Arciszewksi

Heidi first felt Amanda’s impact back in 1997 when Amanda volunteered to help coach Heidi’s 4th grade basketball team. Little did she know, 5 years later she would be sharing the court with Amanda as members of the Thorp Girls’ Basketball team, and later as collegiate competitors. Amanda and Lindsey simply felt like sisters.

Amanda may have never known the influence she had on Heidi – Not only was she instrumental in growing her love for the game of basketball, but she set a standard in the way she lived. What she admired most about Amanda is the way she made everyone feel like the most important person in the room. Heidi feels fortunate to have experienced #12 and #28 on Amanda’s Bucket List. She vows to start each day with a grateful heart and to find joy in the simplest of things, just as Amanda would.
