A gymnast and varsity athlete in rugby, Amber developed an interest in yoga and massage therapy as particularly effective tools for performance recovery.

In her leisure time, Amber enjoys dancing, and is reconnecting with the Inuit heritage her family has lost touch with in recent generations, via soapstone carving.
