Amber Lindsey joined Oregon Food Bank in January 2015, making the jump to nonprofit from a food marketing and communications career in agency and corporate settings. Many of Oregon Food Bank’s generous food and fund donors are former clients from Amber’s agency days, and her extensive foodie background includes launching startup brands and amplifying well known national brands. Her background also includes in-house marketing and communications for McMenamins Hotels, Pubs & Breweries. She has a soft spot for PR and spent several years focused in that area, culminating in the launch of her own consulting practice.
A native of Seattle, Amber is a University of Washington graduate and is Accredited Public Relations (APR) certified.
