Naturalist/Day Camp DirectorAmber grew up in northeastern Oklahoma and spent much of her childhood outdoors. She began working in the camping industry in 1997 and realized quickly that working with children and teaching them about the world around them was a passion of hers. In 2002, she graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.S. in Parks and Recreation Management with a minor in Outdoor Education. After college, Amber taught environmental education in various places across the country including Wisconsin, Connecticut, Iowa, and Texas. Amber first came to Mo-Ranch as a summer conference participant in 1990, and then as an instructor in Mo-Ranch's Environmental Leadership Program in 2006. In August 2007, she moved to Iowa and became the assistant director at a camp and conference center. While there, she reintroduced environmental education to their programming and directed the revamping of their high and low ropes courses. Amber returned to the Hill Country of Texas in the summer of 2009 after finding that she missed teaching. In January of 2010, Amber became the Day Camp Director and Naturalist at Mo-Ranch. In her spare time, Amber enjoys rock climbing, camping, and spending time outdoors with her dog.
