"Amber Holst is Vice President & Editorial Director at Concierge Preferred.
A native Chicagoan, she’ll happily bend your ear about why Top Notch burgers are a must (as is an Original Rainbow Cone) and can often be found procuring milk candy in Chinatown after dim sum with her partner in crime or rooting on her beloved Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field. Lover of cured meats, prosecco, and good old fashioned “slashies” she considers herself fortunate to be able to promote her hometown and state for a living. Fun fact? She can play the accordion."
