Her commitment extends to the arts community, where she serves as the Visual Arts Coordinator at Briarwood Arts Center and is a valued member of the Mississippi Museum of Art's Community Advisory Council, solidifying her role as a passionate advocate for creativity, community, and the cultural richness of Mississippi.
Amber Campbell joins Visit Jackson as a seasoned professional who brings a wealth of experience and a passion for service to her role as services specialist at Visit Jackson. Campbell will focus on supporting the organization's service efforts, ensuring seamless experiences for visitors and building strong relationships with tourism partners. Her expertise will be crucial in exceeding visitor expectations and solidifying Jackson's reputation as a welcoming and accommodating destination.
