Amber moved to the Wood River Valley in March 2019 from Colorado with her husband Brian after many years of planning. She has always had a knack for treasure hunting and a huge heart for animals.

It all started with rescuing many animals as a kid, which turned into her passion for animal and nature conservation.  It was this passion that led her to Mountain Humane and the Barkin Basement.

She and her husband are nature enthusiasts who in their free time enjoy traveling, kayaking, camping, and hiking. They have 3 spoiled fur-babies: Alo- a Silver Labrador Retriever, Brielle a Papillon and Maeli- a Seal Point Siamese.
