Amber Morrison

7c480e4a-03f3-42ed-af2e-7593f5479607Amber is a full time emergency room Physician’s Assistant and an old hippy farmer at heart. When she’s not working long hours in the ER, she’s navigating through her garden, growing her own food, and hanging with her two pups.

Amber is sponsored by Team Nuun and coached by Garry Killgore of McMinnville, OR. Her favorite distances are the ½ marathon to the 25k, though she considers herself a marathoner.

A few of Amber’s favorite things…
Her body mechanic, Brad Jones. “Brad is a local, certified advanced rolfer who keeps my injuries at bay, and who, ultimately, keeps me going.  He has worked with many top athletes including ultra runner, Scott Jurek.”
Her sponsor, Nuun. “Nuun helps keep me hydrated and provides so many yummy flavors.”
Her beloved Seattle Seahawks. “I haven’t missed a home game in over 6 years showing up as my alter ego Superhawk.”
