  • Amber fell in love with cleaning, organizing, gardening, décor, and all things home ownership when she became the proud owner of a historic Victorian home in 2019.
  • She is passionate about helping people turn their homes into sanctuaries one simple tip at a time.
  • When she's not writing or working on DIY projects, she's working on a botanical-themed series of watercolor paintings to be incorporated into her home's ever-expanding eclectic wall décor collection.


Amber has worked as a professional freelance writer and dabbled in home improvement and novice gardening since 2017. In 2018, she embarked on a weight loss journey that inspired her to write The Lazy Girl's 5-Step Guide to Weight Loss, which was shared thousands of times across social media and launched her writing career. She used that boost to land her first steady gig writing for a home improvement site and hasn't looked back. Her work has been published by popular websites like HouseTipster, Popsugar, Glam, and — of course — House Digest.


Amber has an associate's degree in business with a focus on paralegal studies. Her education's focus on legal writing has led to the development of her concise and efficient writing style.
