UNITED STATES of America's  



Amanda Schumacher


Hello, I am Amanda Schumacher, your United States of America’s Ms. New Jersey 2024. I am from a small town in New Jersey called Flagtown. I am a graduate from Rutgers-Camden University with a bachelor’s in criminal justice and currently pursuing my master’s in accounting and business administration. For the last seven years I worked in pharmaceutical industry but plan to become an FBI forensic account with the next few years. 

My platform is American Hero Wishes a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to granting wishes to wounded Veterans to uplift & support them. By granting Veterans their wishes, the goal of American Hero Wishes is to ensure our wounded Veterans know how much they’re appreciated. We give them the support to move forward with their next mission in life. As a granddaughter of two Navy Veterans Leslie Schumacher and William Hurley, I could not think of better way to honor them by being a Board of Directors for American Hero Wishes.


In my spare time I enjoy baking cookies, volunteering, and Starbucks coffee dates with my rescue dog Lily-May. I am looking forward to seeing all that I accomplished this year as your United States of America’s Ms. New Jersey 2024.
