It was then she developed an interest in real estate and began exploring ways she could help others enjoy a positive experience buying a new home.

Outside of real estate Amber serves as a certified judge for many Kansas City BBQ events, volunteers to coach youth soccer, and every year organizes the GlowRun that donates it's proceeds to Wreaths Across American and Erins Hope Project.
