Sam came to Elements after spending 10 months serving in Americorps as an educator for a public school’s organic farm. She is most inspired by the learning that comes from overcoming challenges in nature and the inevitable mindfulness that comes with it.

She also loves rock climbing, road trips, and spending time with her dog.
