A womans place on main street

Amber McCann joined the staff of the Main Street Pharmacy in Laurel, Maryland in May of 2008. A stay-at-home mother for the previous 7 years, she was anxious to make a mark on the local community by teaching breastfeeding classes and offering lactation support. When the opportunity afforded itself to join the pharmacy and build a business marrying her current passion with new ones, she jumped at the chance. She quickly received additional training in bra and mastectomy fitting and sought to build a place where women would feel comfortable and supported. She is a Certified Lactation Counselor as well as a Certified Bra and Mastectomy Fitter.

Amber, a native of Mount Vernon, Ohio, received her B.A. in Sociology from Mount Vernon Nazarene College in 1997. After completing her degree, she moved from the green farm land of Ohio to the dirty streets of Skid Row in Los Angeles to work as a social worker and pursue coursework in Urban Ministry. She also worked for COSI, in Columbus, Ohio, a premier science center in the United States. While there, she was a program coordinator for “COSI On Wheels”, which took science based assemblies and activities into elementary schools. Soon after, she began having a family and chose to be home while volunteering with various church, non-profit organizations and mothering groups.

Amber counts it a privilege to be the wife of Justin and the mother to Svea, Rory and Tait. She is involved with the worship team at Bethany Community Church in Laurel and loves to do water aerobics, sew and travel.
