Amber Powell - UnitedBy8

Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Amber has always possessed an inherent sense of compassion, joy, and passion for her family and friends.  Discovering at an early age the undeniable beauty and joy that came from communicating through dance, her sense of passion for dance and all of the benefits it held became undeniable.  The light that shined bright through her eyes as she performed in front of crowds was apparent to all.

Amber completed her B.S. in Accounting at the University of La Verne in Southern California.  She also obtained her CPA license shortly thereafter.  With limitless entrepreneur spirit she began a successful CPA practice where she focused on helping her clients achieve their dreams using her advisory services.  Well on her way to building a thriving business, she rejoined her original passion for dance by taking class at The Edge Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles. 

After a couple of years it was obvious that pursing a professional dance career was not only viable, but imperative. With this goal in mind, Benjamin Allen and her paths crossed. Amber and Ben became fast friends, working on many philanthropic projects together when he began the journey of creating GROOV3, Amber was there to lend a helping hand in any way she could.  Fast forward to today, she is currently pursuing a professional dance career, has a thriving CPA firm and is enjoying being the CFO/COO of GROOV3 where she, through all of her endeavors, passionately attempts to changes lives one eight count at a time through the power of dance.
