"I love working with such a great team at Olive Tree that is committed to seeing workers thrive overseas. I hope the relevant resources we're sharing can help your personal lives, work and teams flourish - and make your time at Olive Tree that much easier."
Before coming to Olive Tree, Amber used her degree in Graphic Design for nearly 12 years at a global orphan care ministry. She loved working closely in a cross-cultural context alongside national staff in Haiti and Ethiopia. In addition to print/web design, writing, fundraising, and some international small business development, she has also co-created a Trauma Healing Program for children based on TBRI Trauma Competent Caregiving materials.
At Olive Tree, Amber supports the counseling team by designing and maintaining the website, online and print materials, videos and more. She is also welcomes new staff and associate counselors and helps them acclimate to the city.
Amber enjoys being outdoors, a good novel, painting, conversations over coffee, and traveling with her husband, Nick (a counselor here at Olive Tree.) She’s still stumbling through language learning and grateful for the patient friends in this international community to continually learn from.
