Amber began working at CCU in July of 2017. Amber completed her Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education with a concentration in Exercise Science (2012) and Master’s degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Health and Wellness (2014) both from The University of South Florida. Prior to working at Coastal, she worked two years as a Health Fitness Professional for Health Fitness Corporation and was a Group Fitness Instructor in Campus Recreation at The University of South Florida. Most recently, Amber spent three years living in Albuquerque, NM before relocating to Myrtle Beach, SC and becoming an Academic Adviser at CCU.
Her favorite part of working with Coastal students is being able to help students and provide advice and feedback to them when they are unsure of what their future plans are. “I got an education in the field of Exercise Science because I wanted to be the one to help others live healthier lives. I wanted to be their educational resource for any questions or concerns that they had about health and fitness. I love that I am in a position where I can help students make those hard decisions about their future.” Her number one piece of advice for students is to keep an open mind and not to be afraid of change. “It’s okay to be undecided about a career path or even a major. The college experience is to help mold you as a person, find your likes and dislikes, and help you find your passion.”
