Woman escapes years of an abusive marriage to pursue a degree in nursing.
For six years Amber endured mental, emotional and verbal abuse from her husband. When she worked up the courage, she left her abusive husband and sought the assistance from a battered women's shelter for her herself and her four children. She began working at a hospital and started a nursing program. She is studying to be a certified nurse midwife and plans to obtain advanced degrees in nursing. She volunteers at her church, in her community and for the battered women's shelter that provided a safe haven for her family.
