UPHS Announces New Executive Director
UPHS is pleased to announce that we have appointed Ms. Amber R. Tynan as our new Executive Director. We are confident that Amber will hit the ground running and be a valuable asset to the continued growth of our organization. Amber's official first day will be April 2, 2018. You will be able to welcome her at the UPHS Membership meeting scheduled for April 5 at 2 p.m. at the American Red Cross.
Amber has more than 13 years of non-profit management experience and is no stranger to the Big Bend Nonprofit Sector. She has spent most of her career consulting with non-profits ranging in asset sizes of less than one million to five-hundred million - finding ways to improve their operational efficiency and diversifying revenue streams while creating alternative solutions to meet the needs of their target demographic and local communities.
Amber has been recognized for her demonstrated commitment and performance in our nonprofit community as the Fundraiser of the Year by the Big Bend chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, "Leader of the Year" by the Leadership Academy of North Florida, Tallahassee Democrat’s 25 Women You Need to Know, Golden A.C.E. Recipient, the Tallahassee Magazine’s Women Who Mean Business Rock Star Award Recipient, Girl Scout Council of the Panhandle’s Women of Distinction Nominee and a member of Leadership Tallahassee Class 35.
A philanthropist at heart, Amber enjoys volunteering within the community and serves on multiple boards sharing her personal philosophy of “together we’re better.” Amber is a graduate of Florida State University with a B.A. in English and Communication. Amber and her husband Ray welcomed their daughter Finnley-Ann Harper in 2016 and when she is not at the office, you can usually find Amber SCUBA diving or on their boat in the Gulf of Mexico.
