On July 26, Jade Sampson, MBA, M.Ed., Director of Talent Management for AMSURG, received a Nashville Emerging Leader Award (NELA) in the HR category.
The NELAs, hosted by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and YP Nashville, honor Nashville's young professionals for significant accomplishments in their career fields as well as their commitment and contributions to the community. More than 900 applicants were nominated for the awards, and those applicants were then narrowed down to 75 finalists with five in each category. Jade was selected out of five HR professionals from companies such as TechnologyAdvice and Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.
In addition to her role at AMSURG, Jade serves in leadership positions with Junior League of Nashville and Young Leaders Council. She also founded her own nonprofit, Dressed for the Test, which provides school uniforms to children in need.
“Being recognized as one of Nashville’s Emerging Leaders is a true honor, and I still cannot believe I was among the incredibly talented young professionals that were part of this group,” Jade said. “I cannot adequately express my profound gratitude for the leaders in our professional and philanthropic communities here in Nashville.”
When reflecting on the positive impact Jade has had on AMSURG and the Nashville community, Katie Lamb, Vice President of Human Resources, said, “We all know how fantastic Jade is and it is wonderful to see her receive this prestigious recognition.”
Congratulations Jade on your accomplishment!
