Meet Amber

frank_amber.jpgAmber Frank, MD is a new member of AADPRT's Executive Council and she's the general psychiatry training director at Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School. Here's what her kids say about her. And she may write a book...

What are you most thankful for and why? 
My kids! They will be 9 and 13 this fall, and they perpetually keep me on my toes. They make me laugh, help me keep everything in perspective, and offer insightful commentary on my work like "Why do you have so many meetings??" After the many challenges of pandemic parenting, I am also very thankful and have an even greater appreciation for all of the teachers, coaches, babysitters, and childcare workers who play such a critical role in their lives.

What would you like to do for a living if you weren’t a psychiatrist?
Well, before I went to medical school, I worked in theater and also as an outdoor educator, leading wilderness expeditions and leadership development programming. I can imagine an alternate life in which I stayed on either of those tracks, and I also have fantasies about writing full time.
