Amber Casali

Biography: Born and raised in Seattle, Amber Casali considers herself a stereotypical Pacific Northwesterner, someone who loves the outdoors and relishes the natural beauty of our region. After graduating from college, she set off in 2007 on a road trip across the U.S. by herself, and in the course of her journey, started the blog AmberAnda (www.amberanda.blogspot.com). Since then she has continued to write about her international travel and Pacific Northwest lifestyle, maintaining her blog while teaching English in South Korea, backpacking in South America, farming in Europe, living in a yurt and on a sailboat in the San Juan Islands, and traveling in Southeast Asia. After moving back to Seattle three years ago, Amber’s posts now describe her local experiences—backpacking, beekeeping, mountaineering, bike touring, and community gardens. Her interest in the outdoors was sparked at a young age. But it was during a two-month “Bioregionalism and Sustainability” course in California, that involved two two-week-long backpacking trips, one on the Lost Coast and one in Mendocino County, that really inspired Amber to actively explore the wilderness. She has summited Mount Adams, Mount Baker, and Mount Rainier; section hiked most of Washington’s PCT, including six days solo in Glacier Peak Wilderness; successfully taken the Washington Alpine Club’s Basic Climbing and Mountaineering course; and she has recently become certified in Wilderness First Aid, through NOLS. Amber currently is a staff writer at a marketing agency called Projectline, and she has volunteered with the Beacon Food Forest, Seattle Tilth, and the Washington Alpine Club. • Hometown: Seattle, WA • Website/Blogs: www.amberanda.blogspot.com • Published books: This would be Amber’s first book.
