Sam has been with Up with Kids for a while now. She began as an intern in Syracuse and Provo, and then became Director in the Tooele, West Jordan, and Sandy Locations She has also led multiple summer camps throughout her career.
Throughout those years, Sam has cultivated expertise in helping children realize their true potential and helped them grow their self-esteem. She continues to strive to help ALL children to be treated equally, regardless of their background. Her true goals are to help every child feel loved and included, and to nurture their inner potential, to be used both on and off the stage.
While teaching children is her passion, in her personal life she and her husband are raising two children. One brainiac and one artist who both have found how to be themselves through Up With Kids. She loves spending time outdoors and when not teaching can be found gardening, reading, spending time with her dogs and chickens, or in the mountains enjoying time with her family.
