Meet our board members!
The Kansas Animal Control Association is served by a board dedicated to the welfare of animals throughout the state of Kansas. We are dedicated to providing training and education to promote professionalism and pride in the animal care and control field.
Amber was elected KACA president in 2021 and served as the Vice President before that since 2014. She graduated from Friends University with an Associate's in Biology and a Bachelor's in Zoo Science. She spent the next eight years working as a shelter technician for the Hutchinson Animal Shelter and left in 2014 to work as a supervisor of records for the McPherson Police Department. She is an active member of the Kansas Animal Response Team and also helped develop the curriculum on animal cruelty used by the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center. She has trained several Police Departments on dog behavior and use of force and looks forward to the day when it is required of all law enforcement officers. Besides animal welfare, her passion in life is traveling and challenges herself to go somewhere she's never been every year.
