    As a CPA, and leader within a large public accounting firm serving middle market companies across diverse industries, Amber learned that the biggest factor determining the success of a company, is the people who make up the company.  At Hemphill, Amber specializes in helping companies select talented individuals for important positions at all levels within corporate accounting, financial reporting, tax, audit, budgeting, forecasting, planning, treasury, compliance, and public accounting.

    It is fun and rewarding to help a leader select an individual who is well matched for success and happiness in their new position.  The opportunity to work with individuals while learning about their strengths, interests, priorities, and short and long-term career goals is very rewarding.  I really enjoy the relationship side of my work.  It is a lot of fun to see the excitement in an individual who has found the career opportunity that they know is right for them.   It is an honor to be a trusted advisor to individuals who are managing their careers toward the goals that are most important to them.   

    I also enjoy learning about each company we partner with, then teaming up with the leaders to understand their goals and priorities.   Since the success of each leader is dependent upon their ability to create a team of successful individuals who work well together, we play an important role in the success of each of these teams.  

    Amber grew up on a farm outside of Diller, Nebraska which is southwest of Lincoln near the Kansas border.  In high school, Amber was involved in many activities including volleyball, basketball, track & field, softball, powerlifting, 4-H, national honor society, student council, yearbook, school plays, concert, marching and pep band, flag corps, and she led her class as President and Valedictorian.  At Midland University, Amber earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with concentration in Accounting, Marketing, and Management.  Outside of the classroom Amber remained active as a member of the Midland University softball team, Treasurer of the Phi Omega Sorority, President of the Student Ambassador team, and she served on the Midland Strategic Planning Committee, and the Midland Arboretum Committee.  Amber is a Member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and serves on the Careers Committee of the Nebraska Society of CPA’s.  

    Amber and her husband Tyrell have two very active girls Cora and Myla and a black lab named Baxter. Amber and Tyrell love Husker Football and spending Saturday’s in Lincoln each fall. They enjoy traveling, playing volleyball, gardening, planting flowers, and taking their daughters to the zoo whenever possible.  Amber is an active member of Lord of Life Lutheran Church and she serves as Chair of the Finance Committee for Loves Jazz and Art Center.
