Outside of Work
Amber is the proud mother of three girls, outnumbering her husband by a long shot. Even the family dog, Lily, is a girl. In her spare time, she loves being with her family, running, yoga-ing, playing the piano, maintaining first place in parallel parking, embarrassing her children and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Amber is also the author of a children’s book and hopes to author more.
