  • Amber Walden

    Amber was born and raised in New Jersey. She has always been adventurous and active even as a kid. She moved to Houston, Texas in 2008 and was opened up to the veterinary world. Amber has always had a love for animals and after working a year at a hospital in Houston as a veterinary assistant, she realized this is a field she wanted to be a part of. Amber moved to New York in 2010 after receiving a scholarship to attend the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in Manhattan. Amber has acted in theater, film and does stand up comedy as well as being a member of the Sampul Dance Company. When she is not at the hospital working she indulges in shopping, dining out, movies and going to see live music. However, she loves most of all just hanging out with family and friends and her two beloved pets Kush, her 5 year old Rottweiler mix and Abbey, her 7 yr old Domestic Shorthair that she adopted from CAP, a Houston animal shelter. She is happy to be a part of such a caring team at PSVC.
