Amber Ortiz-Diaz

Act Six Yakima Valley Director

Amber graduated from A.C Davis High School and attended Heritage University where she completed her bachelor’s degree.

She spent most of her undergraduate career working in multiple departments at Heritage University where she supported students from first generation to low income. She is excited to continue to mentor and be an advocate for the next generation of leaders. She believes in giving back to the community and breaking the odds. While being active on campus and in the community, she balances it all out for her son Jaiden. She directly applies her passion and commitment with Act Six through the Yakima Leadership Foundation.
