Who We Are & What We're About

Hi, I'm Amber!

I love to chase the magic of life, don't you?

My favorite ways are:

  • Writing
  • Teaching
  • Making
  • Movement


Born and raised in the Appalachian mountains, I have called Asheville my home for my entire life. Growing up in the rolling hills and singing creeks of Candler, I migrated all of 20 miles eastward to Swannanoa to go to college at Warren Wilson College. I then lived for 10 years in the proud-to-be weird, creative downtown neighborhoods of Asheville. I just moved with my family to Marshall, NC , a much quieter, lush, verdant area that is supremely proud of its traditional Appalachian arts and crafts community.

I live with my husband, Bastien, and daughter, Elise, where we enjoy walking to school, the parks and trails and exploring the mountains of Appalachian on the weekends.
