English began shooting at the age of 6 and is a member of a distinguished shooting family. Her father, Mike, and uncle, Butch were U.S. Running Target National Team members and Olympic Training center resident athletes, while her mother, Ana and aunt, Kim were members of one of America's top collegiate rifle programs at the University of Kentucky. As a result, both hunting and shooting are recreational activities for the entire English family. Amber commenced competitive shooting in 2006 at age 17 when she began competing in women's skeet matches. After progressing up the ranks of International skeet shooting, she moved to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado to become a full-time resident athlete in 2013/ Competing in various domestic, international, and world cup matches, Amber has continued to hone her skills as a shotgun shooter, and has her sights set on the 202One Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.  

English joined the Army in February in 2017 where she graduated from Officer Candidate School in Ft. Benning, Georgia. She then went on to graduate from BOLC as a 92A. 

English graduated from UCCS with a bachelor's degree in Health Science in 2012 where she actively worked as a paramedic in and around various Colorado cities.  

Never considered one-dimensional, Amber continues to work towards a new Army officer career, regularly volunteers with various local youth organizations, and works with national conversation organizations. Lover of the outdoors, Amber enjoys hiking, fishing, and hunting in the Colorado wilderness in and around the Rocky Mountains.
