Amber Samuels, RN, BSN, NCSN
I was born in Boone, NC and grew up in Statesville, NC. I graduated from West Iredell High School in 2001. After high school, I went to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing.
From there I worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse and then at a pediatric office as their nursing supervisor. I started school nursing in August 2011 and earned my school nurse certification in July 2012. I actively serve Cooleemee Elementary School and South Davie Middle School as their school nurse. I have always wanted to be a school nurse and love being a school nurse in Davie County. I enjoy the interaction with the children and I hope I make a difference in their day when they are injured or not feeling well or maybe need a little TLC.
The most important people in my life are my family. I am married to a fantastic husband, and we have two sons, Austin and Mason. I am also very close to my mom, dad, and brother. They have all taught me a lot about life and shaped me into the person I am. My faith is also essential to me. God has blessed me in many ways, and I believe my purpose in life is to serve Him by serving others.
