Amber Marchese      

Real Housewife of New Jersey & Two-Time Breast Cancer Survivor

Amber Marchese has been a lifelong resident of the great state of New Jersey, living in the breathtaking, equestrian town of Colts Neck for the past 10 years. She is married to an unbelievable, caring, supportive man, James Marchese. They have a solid, loving relationship, with a typical fiery Italian side to their marriage. Amber is the mother to Corbin and Isabella and stepmother to Michael and Sebastian. The four kids keep Amber on her toes. She puts her family above everything else and ingrains in them traditional values; such as faith in God, proper etiquette, discipline, as well as the importance of a first-rate education.

Amber graduated with a BA, then acquired a Masters in Bio-Behavioral Studies/Exercise Physiology from Columbia University. She has a passion for health and fitness and has created her own fitness brand called Vici fitness. Vici literally mean to “conquer” and is a metaphor, as Amber conquers all challenges and interests.

Diagnosed with breast cancer at 31-years-old, she underwent a double mastectomy and a year and a half of chemotherapy; all while caring for a 2 year old and 1 year old, as well as her stepchildren. She has been in remission for five years, and she attributes being a better mother, wife and person to her battle with cancer. Amber is a philanthropist who donates time and money to countless charities raising awareness for young women with cancer and assisting them with the emotional and financial impact of the disease. Amber’s battle inspired her to pursue a lifelong dream of acting. She has completed years of acting classes, has appeared in several commercials, and filmed a TV episode for the Food Network. The sky is the limit for her, and she plans on conquering the acting world and having a blast with it!

Amber describes herself as an intensely passionate person who is outgoing, fun, and occasionally downright silly. Her faith, integrity, love, and sincerity are driven by a never surrender, never retreat drive to be a better person. Her fire is evident in everything she does and is an inspiration to many.
