Amber is a compliance geek who fell in love with bitcoin when a friend and colleague asked her to update a risk assessment. His company at the time was a payment processor that worked with bitcoin exchanges. Believing that you can only truly understand something by interacting with it, Amber requested that her retainer be paid in bitcoin, Despite this meaning that she had to spend a weekend learning about wallets and security (everything was command line at the time), she quickly fell down the rabbit hole and hasn’t stopped exploring since.
Amber has been a compliance geek since graduating from the University of Waterloo. Amber joined the compliance group at one of Canada’s largest insurers where she focused on the implementation of technology-based processes to streamline compliance. She has since worked in in-house roles with major securities firms and banks, before joining a boutique compliance consulting firm. Amber has also worked with a larger consulting firm, before launching Outlier Solutions Inc. (Outlier) in 2013.
