Amber Logan (Ngāti Kahungunu) is a mother of five and a registered psychologist. She was raised by her kaumātua at Waipatu in Hawkes Bay, next to the marae of the same name. Her early career was spent working as a psychologist in public health settings. This work later expanded to include service and programme development, research and evaluation, teaching and presenting to international forums on indigenous issues.

Amber was recently awarded a PhD with distinction by the University of Otago for her thesis, titled Housing and Health for Whānau Māori.
