Amber Bennett is simultaneously pursuing two big goals – her dream to compete in the Olympics in beach volleyball and her real estate career.
“Most athletes need to find a flexible job to earn a living while training. As a Realtor, I can have a career on my terms without giving up my Olympic dream,” said Bennett.
