Amber’s love affair with the law began  in 2004 when she was studying at Sciences Po in Paris, France. At the time the European Union was just being formed and Sciences-Po was one of the many fundamental platforms where debates regarding the unification of Europe were held.  It was at that time that she learned that the law was more than words and rules, it was a means by which people, businesses, countries and nations could communicate, work together, grow and create value.  Since then, Amber has been passionate about using her skills in corporate and international law to advance communications and value among people, businesses, countries and nations.

Amber is a shareholder of Jackson Corporate Law Offices who joined in 2013.  Prior to Jackson Corporate Law Offices, Amber was an Associate In-House Counsel for the Woodlawn Community Development Corporation where she oversaw all employment compliance issues and employment litigation claims.

Amber began horseback riding at the age of nine, doing western pleasure and advanced to hunter jumper while in France. She is an avid animal lover and she is a passionate wine enthusiast, with a strong preference for wine coming from the Côtes du Rhône region in France.
