Amber grew up sharing time between Okoboji and Lake Park, which is where she received her K-12 schooling. She then attended the University of Iowa earning her BBA in Marketing. Following college, Amber lived in Chicago where she worked as a Marketing Manager in the healthcare IT industry. Amber returned to the area in 2013 with her husband, Devon, and began working as a Marketing Director in the construction industry. For the last few years, she has been with RE/MAX Lakes Realty serving in different capacities ranging from Marketing Consultant, Social Media Director, and Office Administration. As a result of her time spent with RE/MAX Lakes Realty and her extensive marketing experience, Amber decided to pursue yet another dream and earned her real estate license.
Amber and Devon now live in Arnolds Park with thier daughter, Vivian. They built their home in the same neighborhood where Amber lived as a child. According to Amber, nothing compares to being able to move back home to raise her family and work in the heart of the Iowa Great Lakes.
