Business Engagement Specialist
Samantha grew up near Annapolis, MD, where she attended college level courses in her last year of high school to quickly pursue her dreams of becoming an expert in business. Her sibling moved to Asheville in 2014, and after coming to visit that year, she never wanted to leave. Soon after she transferred to the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where she gained a stronger love for all things business, including: marketing, accounting, sales, customer relationship management, and much more. She has attended multiple networking events, competed in pitch competitions, and completed a senior thesis involving a long-term research process to present detailed past, present and future analytics on a national business. She graduated from UNCA with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and set out to broaden her experience. After graduation she traveled to South America with a group of graduate students to learn about the inner workings of large corporations throughout Chile and Argentina. She has continuously been involved with the entrepreneurial community after finishing school to further her knowledge about local businesses.
Sam is extremely family oriented and hopes to convince those back in Maryland to migrate to Asheville one day. She is a lover of art, nature, traveling, design, photography, and videography. Some of her favorite outdoor activities are enjoying backyard fires, camping, mountain biking, kayaking and wakeboarding. Sam is extremely appreciative to be able to work for a company that aligns with her personal values and passion for helping others find easy access to long term healing. Her personal mission is to increase health and happiness within her community and surrounding areas. She looks forward to connecting with employers and providing accessible health care options that support their businesses while helping their employees thrive.
