Marketing Communications Manager
Amber leads graphic design and marketing communications at Oikocredit US. She got her start in communications as a Student Ambassador for Battle Creek, Michigan and made a trip to her hometown's sister city, Takasaki, Japan - which gave her a global perspective from a young age. Amber went on to study Graphic Design and Communications, and graduated from Full Sail University with a BS in Computer Animation where she received mentorship from Disney and DreamWorks animators. She has worked with a number of clients ranging from small businesses and local bands to larger organizations, and has had the pleasure to work alongside companies such as The Kellogg Company and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Amber ventured to the Pacific Northwest to work with Nintendo of America where she designed, laid out, and wrote reports on the consumer experience and supported major product releases such as Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. In her free time, Amber paints and is working towards sustainable living on a small homestead with her partner. Motivated by sustainable agriculture and financial inclusion, Amber is excited to be a part of Oikocredit's mission.
