interpreting and has a Master’s Degree in ASL/English Interpreting. Her certifications are

Language”. On television, Amber has been featured in Totally Biased with W B Kamal, Jimmy
Kimmel Live, and recently she was featured on the Steve Harvey show. As famous for her
activism as she is her work, Amber uses her status to fight for access and equality in the Deaf
community.
Frequently praised for her ability to passionately convey the connection between lyrics and
sounds, Amber’s music interpretations demonstrate the emotional bonds which have driven
music lovers to concerts for years. Her interpretations bring the music to life in a way that is not
often seen in music interpreting. Deaf audience members have often said they are able to
connect to music performance more than they ever had in the past. Her interpretations delighted
and inspired hearing music aficionados to learn sign language. Amber has always loved music
and the Deaf community, but it was not until she saw the San Antonio Deaf Dance Company
and the Wild Zappers perform that she realized that she could hone her interpreting skills to
bridge the access gap in the music industry. Every song and genre is Amber’s favorite! Learn
