Amber is a mechanical engineer, dreamer, adventurer and maker. She spends her time riding and tinkering with bikes, gardening, going on epic outdoor adventures with her wife and giant dog, building things, traveling as much as possible, and perfecting her baking skills. Amber fiercely believes in sustainable transportation and actively works to help make the world a better place through the work that she chooses and volunteer organizations she supports (currently Students Rising Above and Kids Vision). In her less than free time, Amber leads the team at Tesla Motors that is in charge of designing, engineering, and innovating electric vehicle drive units. She was previously principal engineer for Urban Design at Specialized Bicycles where she was recognized as one of the “50 Women Driving the Bicycle Business” (Bicycle Retailer, 2014).
