Sam is Momivate's Leader of Music, Inspiration, and Laughter!
Sam is a new mom to a one-year-old baby girl. Becoming a mother during a worldwide pandemic was one of the most difficult things she has ever done. She learned that motherhood stretches your limits in every regard - physically, mentally, and emotionally. She has gained a lot of respect and appreciation for the role of motherhood and she is beyond grateful for all the mother figures she has in her life.
Sam has a bachelor’s degree in behavioral sciences with an emphasis in psychology and will soon be pursuing a masters degree in social work in order to pursue her goal to address women’s mental health issues. She has a diverse volunteer background including working with children with behavioral issues, helping teens improve their academics, working as a mediator between teens and their parents, co-authoring published psychological research, and helping build homes for families in need. Her professional history includes working as a medical assistant and as head coach for a high school girls lacrosse team. She is devoted to helping others and intends to continue helping others along her chosen career path.
Sam also has a love for music. She has played the piano since she was a kid and has been a member of two award winning choirs. She believes that laughter is the best medicine and loves spending time with her family, who makes her laugh the most. She finds daily inspiration through having honest conversations with others, reading good books, listening to informative podcasts, and searching for something positive in every situation. She believes that music, laughter, and inspiration are all important aspects of motherhood. She also has a deep appreciation for authentic Mexican food, baking, warm beaches, and spontaneous kitchen dance parties.
