Amber has earned a master’s degree in social work from New York University and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Florida International University. Amber began her career as a patient care coordinator in a nationally known psychology practice. As a social worker in both community and school-based settings in New York City, she provided individual, family, and group therapy to children with challenges related to academic, behavioral, and mental health needs. Her specialties were providing comprehensive assessments and integrating each child’s family system into the therapeutic process. Amber’s interest in independent educational consulting led her to return to Florida in 2014 to join AO. She is an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and professional member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP).
