Amber grew up on a hobby farm in Quesnel, British Columbia. Riding horses, milking cows, gardening, collecting eggs, and exploring the forest were her daily activities. This simple yet active lifestyle led her to become an avid outdoors enthusiast and traveller who has hiked, biked, climbed, paddled, and adventured all over the world. She is a passionate mountain biker, kayaker, skier, gardener, and yogi. She is a “Jill of all trades” and loves learning new things. She is willing to try anything and believes that every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow.
Her most recent adventure took her to Thailand where she volunteered at an elephant sanctuary and would love to talk to everyone about the plight of the Asian elephant. She is passionate about animal welfare and environmental sustainability.
She has been working as an Advanced Care Paramedic for over twenty years. Throughout her career, she has worked in urban emergency medical services, as well as done clinic work in rural northern communities and the Arctic. She has completed multiple courses on wilderness medicine and has volunteered with heavy urban search and rescue for years in addition to volunteering for search and rescue when she was younger.
Amber currently resides in the beautiful mountain town of Revelstoke, British Columbia. She considers herself, “semi-retired”, though continues to accept jobs that present unique and interesting opportunities.
