More About Amber
Who I am professionally: I am a freelance copy writer/editor with a Master’s in school counseling who teaches all Language Arts-related classes at an alternative high school by day.
My people: I have a partner in shenanigans and life who lends me strength when I am weak (he also brings so much laughter into my life, which is a sure-fire cure for a crummy day!) and two daughters who are brave and kind and everything I hope to be someday.
I’m good at: Giving pep talks, clumsily walking into walls, baking a mean chocolate chip cookie, and putting pen to paper to express myself.
I’m scared of: Disappointing people. I’m working on that, and I’ve learned that I am harder on myself than anyone else will ever be.
My furbabies: I am a lover of fur-free marine animals and have been obsessed with Shamu since I was a child. But since it’s illegal to do so in the US (of course I checked!), I currently do not own a dolphin or orca whale (even though I’d so love to!).
My favorite self-care: I love catching a good sunrise or sunset. There is something about the promise of a fresh start they provide that, coupled with their sheer beauty, always lifts me.
My hobbies: I love anything nature-related. Hiking, camping, jet skiing, swimming. If it’s an outdoor activity, I’m there. I’m a voracious reader, I love traveling to new and well-loved places, and I also thoroughly enjoy feeding others with recipes I’ve whipped up.
