Hi. I’m Sam.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been called to be an earnest listener and people helper. My name (Samantha) actually means ‘listener’.
When I was 23, I experienced personal tragedy and profound abandonment that lead me into deep depression and poor self-esteem. Through overwhelming heartache and a long healing process, I moved successfully through several careers, from tech newspaper editor to high-powered sales rep to wiretap operator. After my daughter was born, I settled into my true life mission: helping ordinary people reclaim their power, self-love, and belief in themselves to succeed professionally and personally.
While I’ve delivered over 700 business skills courses, motivational addresses, and life coaching sessions, and am certified as a Life Coach by the internationally renowned Empowerment Institute in New York State, my best qualifications are that I have overcome terrible odds to build a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life for myself and my little family.
Through all the pain, I learned to persevere, manage my anxiety and I learned valuable life lessons that I’m grateful to be able to now share with others facing their own obstacles. My greatest blessing is empowering others to create their lives by design and overcome even the most heartbreaking of challenges.
In other words, odds are pretty good that I get how you really feel. I can help.
