Proactive Approach.

Don’t worry! We’re not going to tell you to stop eating meat, throw out your high heels and sit in perpetual solitude. We’re going to encourage you to:

  • Live on Purpose 

  • Be Authentic

  • Do your Best

  • Think Good Thoughts

  • Eat Good Food

  • Try New Things

  • Look Your Best

  • Surround Yourself with Good People 

  • Live Well on Your Own Terms

We encourage you to take a proactive approach to balancing your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. All the clubbing, reality television, trap music and money cannot hold a candle to the happiness you experience when you love yourself, live in your purpose and surround yourself with people who want to see you win. 

There is a wellness awakening happening as people are realizing the importance of self-care. Through our events, workshops, retreats, blog and social media, we introduce you to a collective of wellness experts, professionals, and coaches and a multicultural tribe of like-minded women.


Learn, Laugh, Connect and Grow

Amber Lee Forrester, Founder

Certified coach, facilitator, positive psychology practitioner, & motivational speaker

Our founder, Amber Lee Forrester, creates courses, written, audio and visual content that can be consumed by those who seek to improve themselves and their lives. With a certification in applied positive psychology, Amber’s coaching and motivational speaking are focused on helping people achieve high-level well-being. She specializes in transition, wellness and empowerment and works with a people ranging from young adults transitioning into the independence of adulthood and college to women who are ready for a change in their careers.

Amber’s experience ranges from modeling, on-camera and event hosting and production to innovation, design and product development to and spans across the radio, entertainment, beverage and pet industries.  Her career highlights include the sponsorship and coordination of hundreds of events across the country, creating and selling her dog apparel and accessory line, Kane & Couture, into major retailers such as Macy’s, and being featured on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank, where she was offered a deal with Daymond John and Lori Grenier. 

Amber always positioned herself to stand out and excel by not being afraid to do what she loves and taking the road less traveled. Since her teenage years in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan, she’s been a seeker of knowledge, good times and opportunity. She’s a closet nerd who loves to read books on spirituality, self-improvement and business, so “wellness” felt like the perfect fit when she decided to make a career change in 2016. At that time, she co-founded wellness community, OMNoire with a colleague and produced the Glow Up Wellness Retreat to Grenada in October 2017. Over 50 women came from across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. to join together with women from Grenada for four days of exercise, adventure, inspiring talks, healthy food and purpose driven partying. In December 2017, Amber left OMNoire to start the Quartz Wellness Collective and 39QUARTZ with a goal of facilitating the inclusion of women of color in the wellness movement and creating a community of people who want to be well, live well and do well together.

Amber considers herself a well-rounded, purpose-driven socialite.  A typical Tuesday could include morning meditation, a gym smash, work, home to make dinner for the hubby and kids then meeting her girls in the city (NYC) for a dinner party and a quick dip into a swanky hotspot where she’ll probably end up engaged in a deep conversation over music she wouldn’t want her grandma to hear.  Amber is all about a balanced lifestyle. She credits her happiness to the balance she’s created in her life, and her continued success to her positive mindset, faith and goal setting. As a mother of two young children and the wife of a successful entrepreneur and aerospace engineer, she has learned to thrive by establishing a healthy balance between her passion for success, her family life, social circle and self care.
