As a professional athlete, I get to partner with some incredible companies and people to change and improve lives. I’ve been competing on the road for over a decade and in that time have had the honor of partnering with some inspiring people who create products and provide services that enable people to explore their full potential. I like to think of my sponsors as a cohesive team dedicated to helping people create and live their versions of a Good Life.
Healthy, happy individuals make healthy, happy communities.
Feeling connected and part of a community is essential for people to thrive and feel empowered to give back.
The importance of connection extends not only to other people, but also to our environment. Stewardship of our community environments supports our health and our communities.
Pedaling a bicycle enhances health, fosters community, and provides a fun, environmentally friendly mode of exploration or transportation. (Did we mention we love bicycles?)
When healthy, happy people connect and care, our world becomes a better place.
A lifelong athlete, Amber got her start as a swimmer. Her dedication to both academics and competitive swimming earned her a scholarship to Stanford University, where she earned a B.A. and M.Sc. When a shoulder injury ended her swimming career, Amber found cycling and within a year had signed her first professional contract. She has been competing internationally in road cycling at the professional World Cup / World Tour level for over a decade and has competed all over the world, earning results and a reputation as one of the most respected domestiques in the peloton. Having been afforded so many opportunities through sport, Amber strives to give back in many ways. She mentors other women through Network For Advancing Athletes, serves as an advocate for active transportation with Bike Mansfield, and helps local youth cycling programs with the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program. She also serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Homestretch Foundation. Together with her sponsors and partners, Amber looks to help others #BeTheGood and improve lives.
