Sam joined the Hope House Northern Colorado board in February 2023 and is thrilled to continue her connections with Hope House.  Serving teen moms has always held a place near and dear to Sam’s heart, as her grandparents instilled the importance of giving back to the community and were supporters of Hope House Colorado for many, many years.  As a Greeley/Evans resident since 2014, Sam could not be more thrilled that Hope House Northern Colorado is here to serve the teen moms in her own community.  Since opening its doors in Greeley, Sam has supported teen moms in their quest to obtain their GED through tutoring in math and establishing a pool of tutors for all other subject areas.

After teaching middle school math for 10.5 years, Sam started nursing school at University of Northern Colorado in May 2022 and will graduate in December 2023.  In her free time, Sam enjoys reading, running and working out, snowboarding, traveling, and hanging out with her extended family and her two doggos—Eddie, the Jack Russel mutt, and KT, the corgi/red heeler!
