She now promotes and manages campus-wide events; creates marketing and educational materials; conducts audits, trainings, and educational presentations; analyzes data and best practices; and oversees interns, among other activities.
She got her start in the field of sustainability at the Alliance to Save Energy in Washington, D.C. As a Research Associate she worked on policy development and program activities focused in Asia and SE Europe. Projects included energy efficiency (EE) policy, EE in public buildings and transportation; Energy Star’s ratings framework; US-China eco-city exchanges; water and energy systems; EM&V; and gender issues in climate change for contracts with the World Bank, US DOE, USAID, and APEC, among others.
Amber received her M.A. in International Relations from Seton Hall University, and her B.A. in International Studies from Ohio University. Her graduate internship was in Domestic Policy at The Clinton Foundation, and her other formative experiences include consulting-for-credit for Proctor & Gamble, as well as the Embassy of Poland and the Embassy of Hungary, and studying abroad in Merida, Mexico.
