1169d44Hi I’m Sam, former athlete & beauty queen, current GBS fighter. I drink tea every morning and read books every night. My tiny dog, Mr.Big is my ride or die and I’ve had the same 2 best friends since 9th grade.

I’m a director at WEDI, a national health IT association. In addition to my day job, I’m also the author of, “The Stairway to Heaven is Not ADA Compliant” my personal story of grit, faith & an obnoxious amount of stairs.  Available on Amazon and Kindle.

I’ve been featured on CNN Tonight, Erin Burnett OutFront, The Today Show, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, BBC One, The New York Times, The Washington Post and more.

I’ve earned a B.A. in Mass Communication from Campbell University, a graduate certificate in Political Psychology from The George Washington University, and an Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership (EMHL) degree from Brown University.
