I am a 31-year-old, 7th generation Colorado native, and single father of one. At 13 years old, I got wrapped up in addiction and was in the court system from the age of 14-24. I've been charged with 5 felonies and never convicted of them by the grace of God and good lawyers. Given my former lifestyle, I'm super blessed to be alive and out of prison. A lot of people close to me were not so lucky. When I had a kid, it changed everything for me. In 2020, I started Home Grown Roofing and Contracting at 26 years old. Now I'm a successful business owner and a good father to my son James. My background and current lifestyle can help bring inspiration and hope to those who are still struggling.

Amber has overcome many trials throughout her life. Overwhelmed by her pain and shame, her world was so small, and she couldn't see past her emotions.
