Amberly Lindsay is the Director of Health Services for Ovation Sienna Hills. She began her journey in the healthcare field as a CNA and soon after became a medical assistant working for family practice providers while she attended Dixie State College. A few years and a few babies later, Amberly entered her RN program and graduated at the top of her class, while being a mother to 4 small children. She was nominated by her peers to be the class representative speaker at their gradation ceremony.
Amberly began her nursing career working nights on a busy Medical/Oncology floor. After building a solid foundation, she was able to pursue her passion and transfer to the mother/Baby unit to provide care and education to new parents and their infants. Providing compassionate, gentle care and ensuring understanding and privacy were always priority. She enjoyed floating to new areas in the hospital and particularly loved the NICU and pediatric units.
Amberly found a new and unexpected love working with people inside of their own homes when she became a home health and hospice nurse. Using all the medical and surgical experience learned in her early nursing years, she was able to ensure her patients had the highest quality of care possible at home. Working closely with physicians, physical and occupational therapist, pharmacists, as well as her patient’s family members, she grew to love the elderly population and found she was very good at helping people thrive in their home setting. She will tell you that each of her patients healed a part of her heart while she was with them, getting to know them, and assisting them in their own healing processes.
When Amberly’s stepfather passed away from pancreatic cancer, she found herself better able to relate to and care for end-of-life patients and was able to share a deep connection to family members and grow strong relationships. She studied medications and therapies and became a resource for palliative care services. Everything Amberly does, she does 100% and being a hospice nurse was no exception to this.
Amberly loves going on adventures, laughing until her face hurts, and doing anything outdoors. She would like to live on a beach with 10 dogs and spend every moment possible in the sunshine with her babies. She is married to her high school sweetheart and hopes they end up holding hands and going for walks until they are at least 100.
She is so excited to be a part of the Ovation Community and share her strengths helping others thrive and grow!
