Amber was born among the mountains in Vancouver, Canada. Since a child, she has had a passion for exploring new ideas and new places which has seen her live and work across Canada, the Middle East, and various parts of Asia. Amber has completed a BA in International Development and Environmental Studies, lead the homestay program at a large international school, worked with various NGO’s, and most recently spent time teaching English in northern Thailand which sparked a passion for working with youth.
In her spare time, Amber is all about getting out in nature! Hiking among the cedar and spruce is her favourite way to spend any day, but you can also find her identifying plants, practicing herbalism, fighting for women’s rights, and teaching yoga. Amber hopes to spend the rest of her career exploring new ways to integrate youth development, well-being, and the natural world, and she is beyond excited to be working towards this at Educo.
