Although Amber wears many hats, her favorite pastime is cooking and spending time with family and friends. She is a warrior for God who loves to encourage others. Amber prays that someone will be blessed through the sharing of her testimony!
No one can tell me God doesn’t fulfill his promises! I made a big adult career decision with lots of intentionality and prayer. These past couple of months have been FULL of emotions. I know one thing for sure, I didn’t do any of this alone!
I was given a huge opportunity and took it to Jesus. I told a few close people and randomly asked my prayer warriors to "lift me up in prayer" without sharing any details. During my waiting period and interview process, others would speak to me about taking a leap of faith and having no clue what was presented in front of me at the time.
Well, today I want to encourage the warrior woman who is questioning God's open door, maybe fearing the unknown, or doubting if she is even qualified? This is what trusting God, taking a leap of faith, and favor looks like when your every move is with Christ Jesus.

"Today marks the end of Week 1 in my new role as AVP of Accounting and Finance at The University of Michigan Credit Union
I’ve probably rewrote this post 25 times because I wanted to have the right words to describe this new career journey and the chapter at EY that I’ve come to close. To be honest, there are no “right” words to say as I will truly and deeply miss my EY family. My journey with EY began in 2014 with an internship and transitioned into a full-time career in audit in 2017. Throughout my time at EY, I have been fortunate to be part of several initiatives like EY College MAP, the Black Professional Network, Ripples Initiatives, and EY Connect Days. Participating in these programs has allowed me to give back to the very community that shaped me, and for that, EY Detroit will always hold a special place in my heart. The network and relationships I’ve built during that time are invaluable and I know they will continue.
My emotions are torn because I am beyond thrilled to have been considered for this opportunity at UMCU. Briefly interning at UMCU during my Master’s Program, allowed me to learn and understand the organization. I couldn’t think of a better organization and community to join than the UMCU family. The Purpose and Core Values align directly with what I believe and stand for. While achieving professionally in my accounting role, I know I’ll be dedicating much time to the community to serve and fulfill my personal passions (mentorship, outreach, coaching). I’m excited for what’s to come and to hold this position for not only me but my family and community. God is truly the one to thank and what a testimony I have to share!
Cheers to a new and successful 2024!"
Be encouraged and know that if a little girl from the west side of Detroit, MI can dream it and become it... SO CAN YOU!
