Amber Sharp (2024-2026)

Growing up in Indian Country in Catoosa, Amber’s journey has taken her from being a registered nurse and proud member of the Cherokee community to becoming the CEO of ClaimRev, the only medical claims clearinghouse led by a Native woman. Her background in healthcare and expertise in operations management, combined with her multi-tasking skills as a momma of five, allow her and her Husband/CTO Brad to speed up their ability to receive reimbursements. This allows them more time to dedicate to patient care—the core reason behind her work. Amber looks forward to supporting other Native owned small businesses because together we rise!
