Amber is a Customer and Financial Service Representative at the Susquehanna Bank office in Manheim, PA. With more than eight years of experience with Susquehanna, she enjoys working with customers, helping them to find the right solutions, and making sure they’re happy when they leave her branch. That's important, because her customers are also her neighbors. Amber appreciates living in a small town, where most people know each other. She also has another job, as Chief Operating Officer for her home, which includes her two children. Plus she dabbles in the fitness and entertainment industries, doing Zumba at a local dance studio and singing (mostly in her car and kitchen!).
