Amanda Matava: My Life Outside Work

About me, where to find me, and what times I can meet

A house full of cats

I have four rescue kitties. The gray ones are four-year-old littermates and the black ones are one-year-old littermates. Having all the little personalities keeps life active and interesting. 

The First Company Governor's Horse Guards

I am a trooper in the oldest, continuously active cavalry unit in the United States. We are a volunteer militia housed in Avon, CT which participates in ceremonial parades and events throughout the year, as well as practice weekly mounted drill - which involves riding in formations - and respond when the governor needs our services during state and national emergencies. 

Video Games (plus bonus cat)

Right now I play mainly Fortnite and Red Dead Redemption 2. I am also a fan of the Elder Scrolls series and Star Wars Battlefront.
