Born in Ortonville Minnesota but my father was career army so I was an “army brat” moving with my family somewhere different about every 3 years and I kind of followed that pattern on my own for years but have lived in Hastings now since 1991.

My years at NDBC have been educational and offering much greater personal satisfaction than my 20+ years in Emergency Medicine. At NDBC there is such an ingrained team concept with all of the staff sharing the common goal of bringing our clients’ lives back as close to normal as possible.

Education: Master of Physician Assistant Studies, PA-C
Licensures: Minnesota

Specialties: I am thrilled to be able to work at a place like NDBC which uses a team approach in order to properly diagnose patients. It is fulfilling knowing our clinic can give people answers of the cause of their dizziness and be able to help them fully recover and get back to the activities they used to be able to do.

Outside of work, Amber likes to spend time with family, hiking, cooking, and exploring new places.
