Amanda Davis Carreon is a proud Gainesville native with a four-generation family tradition in the furniture and design industry. Growing up around her mother’s locally beloved furniture store, The Glen Addie Collection, Amanda grew to love staging vignettes and organizing the warehouse. It was there that she found her passion for working with people, creating beautiful spaces, and improving the functionality of every space she worked in. After a wonderful childhood in Gainesville, Amanda attended Louisiana State University, where she was awarded a full scholarship in music and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in music
In college, Amanda discovered her love of fashion and worked for several high-end fashion retailers. She returned to Gainesville after graduation to be closer to her mother and help out at her interior design business. Soon after, her deep knowledge of the furniture and design industry, flair for fashion, and passion for functional and beautiful spaces inspired her to her start A Divine Closet, where she helps clients create custom closets perfectly designed for their lifestyles and living spaces.
Deeply appreciative for all the support she and her family have received from the Gainesville community over the years, Amanda is committed to serving the community in return. She is a member of the women’s auxiliary of the Children’s Home Society – Mid-Florida Division, a charity that benefits abused and neglected children of Gainesville and surrounding counties. She has served as auction chair three times and was a 2018 co-chair for the entire gala. When not creating Divine Closets or making music, Amanda enjoys making memories with her husband, Jaime, and daughter, Isabella Rose.
