Growing up, Amber knew she wanted to help people in her future career, but she wasn’t exactly sure what it could look like. When her little brother was born with Down Syndrome while she was in high school, it all clicked for her. She watched as her brother’s development improved over the years with the help and support of various multi-disciplinary care teams, including ChildServe. After witnessing her brother’s experience, Amber knew exactly what field she wanted to work in.
“Working for ChildServe seemed like a dream to me,” said Amber. “I just admired the thought of working for an organization that impacted my family so much, and then possibly being able to do the same for others – kind of like paying it forward in a way.”
As ChildServe‘s guest services administrative coordinator, Amber gets to be the first smile families see when they walk in the door.
“Building connections and partnerships with families is so important to me because I know from experience how much of an impact they can have,” Amber said.
Today, Amber helps other families experience great life moments almost every day. In her time at ChildServe, she has seen children achieve their restorative therapy goals, wean off feeding tubes or oxygen, gain self-confidence and graduate from services as they work with a caring team. These moments and ChildServe‘s mission are the reasons she loves her job.
“I have never come across an organization so dedicated to helping and advocating for children with special healthcare needs on every level,” said Amber. “The population we serve at ChildServe is one that deserves endless advocacy. I am proud and humbled to take part in it and that is exactly why I cannot see myself working anywhere else.”
