In 2009, while playing basketball at The University of Tennessee, Amber suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke and brain aneurysm. A year later she was back playing collegiately and went on to play professionally for 4 seasons in France before retiring in 2021. She is the owner of WHERE2NEXT HOOPS and the founder of The Amber Gray WHERE2NEXT Foundation, where she strives to inspire, encourage, and motivate our youth to focus on the next phase of their life, as where you’re going is more significant than where you have been. In addition to her basketball abilities and non-profit ventures, Amber is the Director of Youth Development for FBC MidWest Women's AAU Basketball Program, Assistant Coach for Sycamore High School Women's Basketball Team, and a paraprofessional for high school students with Mental Disabilities.
