Amber Barnes Founder StartHuman
Amber Barnes developed her profound respect for human interaction as the Director of Operations for a chain of funeral homes in Reno and, later on, as the Learning & Sales Development Consultant for Wells Fargo Bank. Starting then, and for the last two decades she has honed her professional skills in organizational development and executive coaching - earning a master's degree and numerous certifications. She's worked to develop leaders, align teams and improve performance for diverse clients from small startup businesses to Fortune 500 organizations including Adobe, Intuit and MetLife.
In 2011, Amber ventured out on her own to create a company that would allow her to work with clients who believed as much as she did that humans are a crucial and valuable part of every enterprise - one that if respected and understood, could catapult an organization to new heights both within the workplace and with customers. She named the company StartHuman for that very reason: the best companies think about humans first. Amber is a native Northern Nevadan and loves being outdoors in nature, especially with her two labs, Finn and Guinness.
