A little about me:

Hello, I'm Amber!

Well, for a little information about me, I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and graduated from Roosevelt High School. After high school I decided to go to school at Dakota State University where I graduated in Computer Graphic Design and played softball. I loved the smaller collegiate atmosphere and connections you can make with your professors.

I love being an admissions counselor here at DSU because I can share my personal experiences with prospective students, and help get students excited about college. I loved Dakota State and would be more than happy to tell you more about why.

I was recently married in November of 2011 in Las Vegas with some of our closest friends and family members. Then in October of 2012 we had our first son, Nolan. I like being active and staying busy with sports and enjoying the outdoors. And I’m a foodie and love trying new things and love me a good steak!

10 Interesting Facts About Me:

  1. I love sports. Played several growing up, but continued playing softball through college.
  2. I am absolutely petrified of snakes. I can't even look at them.
  3. I'm a huge weeny. I have a very small pain tolerance, and I don't really like getting hurt.
