About 10 years ago after Amber performed in a elementary school musical of It’s Christmas, Carol, her grandmother looked at her after the performance and said, "You should do this for a living." Today Amber is a Senior at Emory & Henry College. She is pursuing a BFA in Design & Production with an emphasis in Scenic and Lighting Design and Stage Management. She plans to attend graduate school in hopes of obtaining an MFA in Design & Production. This will help her pursue her goal in becoming a freelance designer and a professor of design and production on a collegiate level.
