Amber Brooke Copley (born August 2, 1985) is a beauty queen from Abingdon, Virginia who has competed in the Miss Teen USA and Miss USA pageants.

Copley won her first pageant title in 2002 when she became Miss Virginia Teen USA 2003. She competed in the Miss Teen USA 2003 pageant held in Palm Springs, California in August 2003, but did not place. The pageant was won by Tami Farrell of Oregon.

Copley returned to the pageant stage in 2003 when she won the Miss Virginia USA pageant, becoming the first Miss Teen USA 2003 delegate to win a Miss USA state crown. She represented Virginia in the Miss USA 2006 pageant broadcast live from Baltimore, Maryland in August 2006 but again missed the cut. She was one of six former Miss Teen USA delegates to compete in the pageant, including Tara Conner of Kentucky, who won the Miss USA title.

Copley gave up her title in September 2006, when she crowned Lauren Barnette as the new Miss Virginia USA. Barnette was Miss Virginia Teen USA in 2002, and had crowned Copley as that pageant's 2003 titleholder.

From eighteen months old, Copley was raised by her grandparents, as her teenage parents were unable to take care of her. But her mother stayed very active in her life and had visits with her as well as her mother's family. [1] She graduated from Abingdon High School in 2003 and then attended Virginia Tech where she studied communications. Her hobbies and interests include exercising, shopping, playing guitar, snowboarding, writing, acting and modelling.

Copley competed in the Miss Earth United States 2009 pageant as Miss Southern States.[2]
