Amber joined the ABC 17 News team as a multimedia journalist in December 2019.
Before starting her reporting career at KMIZ, Amber was a student-athlete at Parkland College and Missouri Valley College. At Missouri Valley College she was an anchor, reporter and host for KMVC and the Viking Sports Network.
Amber created her own on-air segment, "Around the Table with Tabeling," that focused on student-athletes' background and life at MVC. She also interned for WCIA's sports department during her junior year, where she first experienced what goes on in a live newsroom.
Amber is very proud to come from two smaller colleges where she was able to learn, explore and grow, while also playing a sport she loved with her best friends.
Amber is from a small town in Illinois, where she knew she was interested in broadcast at a young age. She loved watching sports with her family and wanted to be like Erin Andrews. Amber believes everyone has a story and she enjoys bringing light to those stories.
In her free time, Amber loves supporting her brother and sister in all of the sporting and academic events. You can catch Amber spending as much time as she can with family and friends.
