100 0674Currently a seasonal performer, Amber's interest in singing blossomed in 5th Grade during her solo "debut" finale of Lead Mine Elementary's production of "A Whole Lotta' Faintin' Goin' On".  Amber won awards in vocal competitions in junior high & high school and was a selected participant in the NC Honors Chorus five years in a row.  

Earning superior ratings in judged solo competitions, she was also a regularly selected soloist for Sanderson High's Spring Concerts. She served as co-student director of Sanderson's "Sandpipers" in 2000-2001.  Amber performed as a 2nd soprano & as a soloist with the Sandpipers in public & private sectors including the Governor's Mansion, Nortell, Springmoor Retirement Home, Memorial Auditorium (Pieces of Gold), other competitions & festivals at ECU, Peace College.  Amber performed with the Sandpipers during chorale group trips to Chicago & Florida.  After graduation she traveled to Italy with the Sandpipers to perform in a four-city tour including a performance at the Vatican.  Amber was also asked to perform several times as a soloist at the NC Bach Youth Festival.

Amber obtained her Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies (Social Change Leadership - her self-directed major) and her Masters studies (both at at NSCU) in public administration with a non-profit focus.

She serves as the executive director of a non-profit organization she established.  Under her leadership and with a team of board members and volunteers, Activate Good, has gained recognition for their unique approach at encouraging volunteerism and good works.

Amber enjoys drawing as a side-line and accepts commissioned art projects from time to time.
