Sam has always had a soft spot for those in need, and originally attended school to become a registered nurse. Halfway through her studies, she decided to change her patients from people to animals. During her senior year of college, she completed two internships in veterinary medicine. One was at a smaller hospital that was mainly focused on general medicine, the other at a bigger, emergency hospital. Having the chance to see these two sides of veterinary medicine, Sam decided she wanted to stay with emergency medicine due to its variance and intensive nature. After graduating, Sam accepted the position as an E/CC technician at Angell West in December 2015.

When she is not at work, Sam enjoys spending time with her family and their two Yorkshire Terriers, Teddi and Duncan. She also has a large extended family (including her grandmother, two aunts, four uncles, 20 cousins, and eight family dogs), all of whom she sees on an almost-weekly basis!
