Amanda Stuhl-Oling grew up in rural Alberta and in 1999, realized her dream when she began a career in law enforcement. That career ended up spanning a period of 15 years and saw her hold various positions including Fish & Wildlife Officer, Special Constable and Community Peace Officer across various locations within the Province of Alberta.
Amanda is a professional and engaging speaker on impaired driving, traffic safety, and decision making. Drawing from her 15 year career in law enforcement, her presentations have been described as attitude changing and life altering by several businesses, schools and organizations. She has spoken to large corporations such as ConocoPhillips, Pembina Pipeline, Bonavista and Pengrowth Energy and been a keynote and session speaker at Provincial, National and International Conferences, including the Students Against Drinking and Driving Alberta and Saskatchewan Provincial Conferences, the Canadian Youth Against Impaired Driving National Conference and the International uLead Conference for School Administrators.
Drawing from an immense personal tragedy in her own life – the loss of her Father to an impaired driver in a stolen vehicle while on his way to work in Alberta’s oilfield – Amanda’s life changing presentations focus on the risks and consequences associated with impaired driving and making the wrong decisions in life.
Amanda has a unique way of captivating and engaging her audiences through an effective blend of humour, hands on demonstrations and dispelling myths on impaired driving and the decisions we sometimes take for granted.

You save lives and you have changed mine. Thank-you with love. – student – 2016 Manitoba Friends for Life Tour
There were many speakers over the weekend that changed my perspective on distracted and impaired driving. My favourite was Amanda Stuhl-Oling; she was a former Alberta Officer who has become a speaker sharing her experiences with impaired drivers. Her story is what changed my outlook on impaired driving. She talked about an impaired man that ended up killing someone close to her. The way she explained her story made me think, “what if this would have happened to me? How would I go on losing someone so special in my life over a preventable accident?” Amanda talked about the aftermath of the accident about going through her loved one’s belongings, smelling their scent on their clothes, dealing with court and much more. We only think that accidents affect us when it happens, but it definitely affects the people involved and those close to them for a lifetime. – student review in Unity Composite High School Newsletter

Thank you for the presentation, I was deeply touched by it… For you to go through such a terrible experience like that than be able to talk about it in front of lots of people you don’t know takes a lots of courage and strength. Thanks for putting your experience into educating people, and gaining awareness. I know I am not the only one who left thinking about you and your family. Hope you have a great day – Student, High Prairie, Alberta
