In June 2016, Amber opened our sister company, I.V. League CPR and Safety Education Center which offers CPR classes, Breastfeeding & Lactation, and Health and Wellness Classes.

In February 2017, Amber opened the third addition to the I.V. League family, I.V. League Center of Wellness which offers students and the community yoga classes, massage therapy, and volunteer opportunities.

Amber has a true passion for the art of nursing and has a gift for teaching and instructing nursing students. By presenting the information in a way that enables students to comprehend and understand the material rather than memorize and reproduce the material on an exam, Amber truly shows a heart for nursing students and enjoys mentoring and helping students learn and pursue their passions in nursing.

The latest venture Amber has set out on is the I.V. League Center of Wellness which hosts multiple yoga classes, massage therapy, and community service activities to foster health and well-being of the community.

Kate Thomas, Tutor

A native Houstonian, Kate attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After she graduated in 2010, she began working at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center on a neuro/rehab floor. In 2012 she moved down to UTMB in Galveston to work on a Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery floor. Now she is a staffing/agency nurse for UTMB and works all Med-Surg/telemetry areas. Kate loves being a nurse (especially a cardiac one!) and enjoys passing along knowledge to nursing students in the clinical setting, and now on the didactic side as well.

When Kate isn't at work, you can find her chasing after her two very young, rambunctious boys, playing piano, reading a book or working out/running. She is married and her husband works for NASA. They currently live in the League City area.

Stephanie Fischer, Social Media Student Liaison

My name is Stephanie Fisher. I am 25 years old and am a Nursing student at UTMB. Before college, I was in the U.S. Army for 4 years, in which served 1 year in Afghanistan in 2010-2011. It's during this time that I realized I wanted to pursue nursing, having been assigned to a hospital unit. In 2013 after my service, I had my beautiful 4-year-old daughter who keeps me on my toes, especially during nursing school!

Upon graduation, my goal is to work in critical care, peruse a graduate degree to be a Nurse Practitioner, and possibly be a life flight nurse.

I am so excited to be part of the I.V. league team. I love everything it stands for. It's such a positive, empowering place that helps so many including myself! I attend tutoring sessions regularly at I.V. League and they have helped me immensely in multiple courses. I love my job here at I.V. and I can't wait to see what the future holds!"

Marlaena Meadows, Administrative Assistant and Nursing Student Yoga Instructor

Hello! My name is Marlaena Meadows and I am a yoga instructor with I.V. League Tutoring and the Administrative Assistant.
Born and raised in West Virginia, I have lived in the Houston area since 2015 with my husband, Mark and my son, Wesley. I have many interests, but the common thread among most of them is my love for teaching. I earned a Bachelors and a Master’s degree in elementary education at West Virginia University. I became a Registered Holy Yoga Instructor (R-HYI) in 2014. Most recently, in 2016, I became a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the National Association of Sports Medicine. Whether I am teaching a child how to read or training someone in the fitness world, my driving force is the same - to help that person realize their true potential and become the person God created them to be.

I am here to help any and all students to meet their needs so that they can focus on learning and mastering nursing school. As a yoga instructor, I seek to help nursing students maintain balance, strengthen their core, and relieve stress!
