Amber was born March 9, 1983 to Phil and LeAnn (Ott) Arens.  She was raised in Le Mars and graduated from Le Mars Community High School in 2002. She was part of the first LCHS girls basketball team to qualify for the State Tournament in 2002 and still holds the career basketball rebound and block shot records. She received her BA in Nursing from Briar Cliff University in the spring of 2012. Following graduation Amber held a variety of nursing jobs over the course of 10 years. Ultimately, she landed her dream job at Floyd Valley in Le Mars managing the Infusion and Oncology Department for two years. She loved her patients and co-workers who became like family. However, Amber’s favorite and most rewarding job was being a mother to Kaylee, Carson and their dog Marley. Amber valued traditions with her family, from large fireworks shows on Independence Day to watching a ‘Christmas Story’ on repeat and making homemade ice cream at Christmas. 

 

Amber delighted in reading, crocheting, rearranging and decorating her home and spending quality time with her children. 

 

Amber was a co-coach of Carson’s traveling basketball team “The Blue Jays” with Troy Kneip. She loved working with the boys, teaching them the fundamentals of basketball and the importance of teamwork.
