Reviews:

“Amber is the first speaker I’ve heard to successfully present the challenge and resolve of conflict between LGBT, family and religion. Amber is a seasoned presenter and talented speech architect who uses every crafted sentence and gesture to channel her emotion into a essential message of hope that the audience craves and honesty that makes her words genuine. I would highly recommend Amber for any speaking event in which her topic would be of benefit to the audience.”
-Marty Dickenson
Web Marketer/Web Services Provider

“Amber is an accomplished speaker who doesn’t hesitate to allow herself to be vulnerable in front of an audience. By sharing her own imperfect life in such an honest way, she wins empathy and respect while encouraging listeners to be less judgmental and more tolerant. Amber’s acceptance of her own frail humanity makes all of us feel more accepting of ourselves and others–she’s inspirational.”
-Gloria Lesher, M.A.
Writer/Editor

“Amber is such an inspiration! I love hearing her speak because it comes from the heart and has such passion. She doesn’t just talk about herself, but actually gets to the point of how we can progress though our challenges with strength and tenacity! Love her and I can’t wait until her next speaking event!”
