Having grown up in rural south Georgia, Sam loves being outside, getting my hands dirty and interacting with animals. Sam graduated from Auburn University in 2014 with dual degrees in Economics and International Relations. She moved to New York City in 2015 and worked as an Executive Recruiter for a boutique search firm in the Financial Services industry. After five years in recruiting, she realized that so many of the things she really loved were absent from her life. So, she made the decision to become an Animal Control Officer, which has given her the chance to work with animals every day and have the opportunity to give back to the community!
