Amber Bradbury was raised in both Upstate New York and Sacramento, California. Having lived on each coast of the United States as well as being bi-racial, she enjoyed diverse interactions. She spent her early years at her grandparents’ and aunts’ houses in New York. She also has fond memories of California, as a member of a close-knit family, all of whom lived on the same street. Amber is forever grateful for the time she spent at Lake Tahoe developing a lifelong connection to nature.
