About Amber, in her own words: I’m Amber Smiley, the Program Manager at Hope After Loss which is a Connecticut based non-profit that supports those that suffer pregnancy and/or infant loss.

The loss of my son in 2013 lead me to work towards a master of marriage and family therapy and ultimately brought me to Hope After Loss. I’m working on contact hours and hope to be licensed in the near future.

I am wife to Chris, mother to Jasper and Phthalo. I like art! My people are the grieving people. I try to be kind always.
