Amber has been an outstanding Program Aide at the Estes Park Site for the last three summers. Amber is famously known for her work directing and organizing the Annual Estes Park Play each summer, which she started three summers ago! This fall Amber will be headed back to school for her final year in college, where she is earning a degree in Education. We will miss you Amber, and hope to see you next summer!

What is your favorite food?
All things cheesy. There's this dish they have in Costa Rica called casado that's basically rice and beans, fried fish and veggies (and cheese, obviously) which I could eat for every meal for the rest of my life.
What is your ideal vacation?Well, I love beaches and tropical locations but the problem is I am gourmet mosquito food (apparently mosquitoes are more than twice as likely to feed on people with type O blood, which is me). Lately I'm feeling the idea of a staycation. People vacation to Estes from all around the world, and I get to live here! Sometimes that still amazes me.
If you were trapped on a deserted island, what three things would you bring with you?
1. A fun and willing companion who knows a lot about wilderness survival.
2. A really good knife or something...I don't know, ask my companion.
3. A satellite phone so I don't have to stay forever. 😉
What is an unique talent you have?
I'm really good at Disney Scene It.
My favorite part of each summer is—hands down—the plays I've worked on. I love the entire process of making a play happen—making the set and awesome costumes for each kid, seeing the enthusiasm and dedication in the kids...honestly, it's amazing seeing kids who've never done theatre before break out of their shells. Overall, though, I really love the relationships I've built with the kids over the last three summers. I miss them so much during the year!
