Amber grew up watching Atlanta Braves baseball, gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, and SEC/ACC football. She stumbled into the hockey life in 2008 while living in Huntsville, when a friend heard about her interest in hockey and started taking her to UAH and Huntsville Havoc games. She quickly fell in love with southern hockey (and goaltenders named Cam Talbot, although that would later expand to a love of goalies in general). The soccer interest started with fellow Alabama native Mia Hamm and the USWNT taking gold at the 1996 Olympics, and expanded beyond national teams once she moved to Dallas and had a convenient MLS club to watch. She’s also an avid music nerd and a follower of Drum Corps International, where she enthusiastically cheers on the Carolina Crown.
