Amber entered the working world after high school, but found it difficult to make ends meet. Her mother encouraged her to enroll at Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) where she chose to pursue a career in nursing.

WCTC awakened part of her personality she had never before tapped. Amber was active in student government, the REACH Multicultural Club and was a student representative on the President’s Cabinet. She eventually won the Health and Service Occupations Outstanding Nursing Student Award and Student Government Member of the Year.

"My life did a 180 degree turn thanks to WCTC. I discovered a passion for serving others and the community and I have carried that passion into my profession," Amber states. "WCTC gave me a strong foundation in education and leadership activities."
