Amber Pritchard was born in Florida to a military family, and she was raised in North Carolina after living in Texas, California, and New York. Lured by tales of Bigfoot, western exploration, towering forests, and a vibrant and unconventional city culture, Amber dreamed of moving to Portland, Oregon. That dream came true when she was offered a Dean’s Scholarship at Lewis & Clark Law School. Amber is a wife, stepmom, runner, amateur gardener, fitness fiend, surfer, and snowboarder. She is also an avid sports fan, cheering for the Buffalo Bills and Sabres, North Carolina Tar Heels, and Portland Trail Blazers, Thorns, and Winterhawks.
