Amber’s initial interest in archaeology stemmed from social studies class in junior high school where during a field trip to the Manitoba Glass Company Site in Beausejour (Manitoba Provincial Heritage Site No. 44), she was given the opportunity to practice standard archaeological techniques. In 1994, she decided to pursue a degree in Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Winnipeg. During the summer of 1996, Amber attended the field school at The Corrigal House (EaLf-39) in St. Andrews. She graduated with her BA degree in Anthropology in 1998 and a MA degree in Archaeology and Heritage in 2016. Amber currently works for InterGroup Consultants Ltd., as an Archaeologist. Maintaining a strong connection to the archaeological community, she assists the Manitoba Archaeological Society as Past President after completing her second term as President (2013-2018). Prior to her role as President, Amber served two terms as secretary (2008-2012) and acted as Media Relations Coordinator (2012-2013) for the MAS.
