Founder, Executive Director
Amber is a wife, mom of many, and survivor of sexual trauma. She hit her wall in 2010, realizing that never dealing with her lifetime of abuse was affecting her in every area and in every relationship in her life. She became desperate enough to begin a healing journey that still continues today. She has taken what was meant to destroy her and is using it to bring beauty and healing to so many others.
