Picture of Amber Simpson

Amber Simpson has more than 28 years of experience in Learning & Development including Facilitation, Instructional Design, Learning Architecture, and Learning Technology. She and her team currently support the learning knowledge management efforts for Knowledge Management & Digital Learning within Walmart Academy, the biggest corporate learning organization in the US supporting all 1.6 million Walmart US associates. During Amber's tenure, she has spearheaded the design and creation of a learning metadata management solution that creates a mapping standard against learning objectives and competencies, thus reducing redundancies, identifying learning gaps, and enabling search and recommended content. While Amber's first love has been immersing herself in all learning initiatives, it wasn't until she cross-pollinated the world of Learning and Knowledge Management that she discovered her true passion of capturing and leveraging content knowledge to establish a seamless experience for her learners.  Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Russ, and her fur babies Cash and Tucker.
