Born and raised in North Carolina, her passions for outreach, storytelling and archiving, and protecting community spaces emerged from her southern upbringing and Afro-Latinx identity.

Following her undergraduate career Amber held the position of exhibitions intern at The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. She seeks to use her multidisciplinary background to support the efforts of The CPA Team. In her free time, she enjoys making playlists, visiting art museums across Boston and going for walks around Lower Mills.
