Amber has been in the financial services industry for over 20 years. She began her career at Ernst & Young, auditing some of the largest companies in the world. In 2001, she channeled her CPA background and inner spreadsheet to help families plan for their financial future. She enjoys serving Executives, Business Owners, Women, and High Net Worth families who appreciate her high-touch personal approach. Her efforts have been recognized at the Barron's Top Women's Advisors Summit, Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisors and Working Mother Top Wealth Advisors - both by SHOOK Research.***
Personally, Amber enjoys spending time with her three daughters and does her best to find shoes that everyone likes! When she's not with the girls she enjoys yoga and on rare occasions, a weekend nap. With a passion to learn and a love of people, she and her husband formed Seale Wealth Management. Both met and graduated from the University of Texas in Austin. She graduated summa cum laude with both a Bachelor of Business and Masters in Professional Accounting.
Amber has served in many roles at Highland Park United Methodist Church and was on the host committee for Dallas Children's Advocacy Center and the Clayton Dabney Foundation (benefiting kids with cancer). She loves participating in the National Charity League with her girls and is the Voice of Hope liaison. Amber was asked to be a panel speaker for Women Doing Well, an organization promoting philanthropic giving and is regularly invited to speak at National Raymond James conferences. She has been awarded a seat on both the firm's Technology and Executive Councils, which meet with Raymond James top management team quarterly.
Amber has a heart for teaching women and making complex financial terms easy to understand. "It's been a joy to be invited to teach Basics on Investments at HPISD and in the community over the last 16 years. I love seeing others eyes light up when they understand a topic they never enjoyed," Seale says.

***The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors and Working Mother Top Wealth Advisors, both developed by SHOOK research are based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data. Forbes advisors must have a minimum of 7 years of experience, with Worker Mother Advisors must have a minimum of 5 years of experience with at least one child living under the age of 18 living at home. Ranking algorithm is based on factors like service models and investing process, client retention, revenue trends, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. These rankings are not indicative of advisor's future performance, are not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients' experience. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors or RIA firms pay a fee in exchange for these awards/ratings. Raymond James is not affiliated with Forbes, Working Mother, or Shook Research, LLC. Out of 21,138 advisors nominated by their firms, 2,213 received the Forbes Best-In-State award. Working Mother received 19,616 Advisor nominations based on thresholds. 4,486 Advisors were invited to complete the online survey. 4,591 Advisors were interviewed by telephone. 893 Advisors were interviewed in-person at the Advisors' location. Final list of the top 200 Advisors was then compiled based upon the quantitative criteria.
