Amber has dedicated more than 10 years to PTC, working in various positions within the PTC community and now serving as the Communications Center Director.
Amber was one of the first people I interacted with during my PTC training, and she pointed out the obvious fact about PTC—that we lacked diversity. This had been her focus for quite some time, and she is passionately ensuring her team is trained and well-versed to handle all students, no matter the background. Her willingness to help change PTC from within is contagious.
Amber has put herself on the line to not only support her team, but also her students, serving as the choir teacher and offering support to the “outcast” art students that have a passion for music and creativity.
I believe that Amber sets an example that the rest of us at PTC need to follow. She acknowledges that what we have done in the past will not get us where we need to be, and that we need to change how we connect with current and perspective students to see an improved PTC.
