Amberley Wallace was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She is the second oldest out of seven children. Five girls and two boys. From the time she was young, she has had a passion for learning and educational excellence. She was valedictorian of her high school and from that point decided to further her education by attending Utah State University in Logan, Utah. She received an Associate’s degree and Bachelor’s degree in art with a minor in multi-media. She loves to spend her time painting, drawing, sculpting, reading, hiking and playing games with her family. She also has an adventurous side and enjoys traveling on her own, motorcycle rides, and trying crazy things like cliff jumping and skydiving.
She found a love and appreciation for genealogy when her father was able to find out who his biological father was after fifty years of wondering thanks to DNA testing and family history. After he found him, they were able to connect and communicate via email correspondence. And Amberley was able to fly out to Denmark and meet her biological grandfather for the first time last year. She is excited to learn more about her family tree, make new connections, and be a part of the family history journey for others as well.
