Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Ingraham.
Amber, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My design career began when I went to a college in 2007 for website design. I earned my degree in website design, and then I went back to college in 2012 and studied under the prestigious and notoriously hard-to-get-into graphic design program at Iowa State University.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I excelled with straight A’s for some time before I was forced to drop out of school due to my failing health. I was diagnosed with Grave’s disease (hyperthyroid). That was a huge bump in the road!
I never did get to graduate and finish my graphic design degree. I had to move in with family to recover and regain my sense of self. There was a time I was very uncertain of what my future would hold, as I didn’t know if I would be able to overcome my disease. Along with Graves Disease comes depression and anxiety.
After battling with it for a year, I decided to approach my disease nutritionally. Within four months of dietary changes, I had hit complete remission—which means I didn’t even have thyroid antibodies anymore! Those compounded exponentially until I was finally able to start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Flawless Design and Coaching – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My business is called Flawless Design and Coaching. I am a business and branding coach as well as a web and graphic designer. I also am a photographer. I work with businesses both local and far away on everything branding, business and digital. On a side-note, I’m also a certified health coach from HCI! With that said, I specialize in working with those in the wellness industry, with my specialty being working with health coaches.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I feel that making ripples of positive change across the world is success. They say that we are all the size of an ant from above. I like to think that my ripples make me just a little bit bigger.
