At the core of Amber’s professional and personal philosophy, is the belief that each person has the capacity to lead, we do our best work when in collaboration with others, and that we grow the most when we are in spaces where we can engage in dialogue across differing identities. Amber brings experiences from the Center for Leadership & Social Change (FSU), doing integrated work across leadership, social identity, and community engagement as well as experiences from the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs (NYU) with Peer Education teams.

Amber grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and completed her education at Capital University (BA – Spanish and Psychology), New York University (MA – Higher Education), and is currently enrolled at Florida State University’s PhD program in Higher Education and Public Policy. Amber’s academic interests focus on feminism and its role in public policy as well as non-traditional students.
