VP of Client Services
Amber is the Client Services Director. Being a SmartBug veteran, she's lived through rapid business growth and, unintentionally, became obsessed with growth and the systems to hack it. As an ex-psychology nerd turned marketer, she considers herself a t-shaped marketer. She prides herself on client happiness and isn't afraid of hard work, which she credits to her upbringing on a farm in North Dakota.
