Prior to joining Transcend, Amber served in various support professional roles at both the central office and school-site levels for the Clark County School District in Nevada. At Victoria Fertitta Middle School as the school administrative secretary, she developed an endearment for middle-school-aged students and passion for leadership, school culture, equitable learning environments, and evidence-based decision-making.
During the pandemic, Amber was inspired to return to school and earn a Bachelor of Science in Data Management and Analytics from Western Governors University.
