Hospital Welcomes Lead Athletic Trainer

« Return

Amber Petrey, LAT, ATC, is new to the hospital team but not to our community or local high schools. She previously served as an Athletic Trainer at St. James High School while employed by the Ochsner Sports Medicine Institute. Her 15-year tenure with Ochsner allowed her to work alongside sports medicine experts while strengthening her skills and developing herself as a leader in the field.

Amber graduated from Lutcher High School and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Training from Southeastern Louisiana University. She is licensed by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners and nationally certified by the Board of Certification for Athletic Trainers.

She is a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and serves on the Secondary School Committee for the Louisiana Athletic Trainers Association.

Amber will help facilitate the establishment of a sports medicine presence in our community by leveraging her experience and relationships with healthcare providers.

“I am an advocate for each athlete’s overall health and well-being,” says Amber. “One of my greatest joys of this job is being a small part of these athletes’ journeys and doing my part to help them grow and develop into healthy, young adults.”

“I am excited to be back at Lutcher High School where my professional journey began and I take great pride in working for a healthcare team that is willing to invest in our community and its youth.”
