Amber has been in the hospitability industry for over 15 years. She is highly experienced with catering and nutrition and working in fine dining restaurants alongside Michelin Starred chefs.
Courageously, Amber remembers how she used to drink a lot of alcohol to deal with the work pressures – sometimes half a case of beer was required to put her to sleep.
A pivotal moment in her life was New Year’s Eve 2017 – She was managing a large 1600 people event overlooking the Opera House. She decided to have an after party celebration at her house and purchased plenty of alcohol for all the chefs and staff to consume.
However, it all started to go downhill when the staff and chefs were too exhausted to celebrate and chose to go and rest instead. Amber was disappointed, lonely and upset and chose to drown her sadness with all the alcohol at home.
