Hi, I’m Sam! My passion is people, and my mission is to ensure compassion, encouragement, and authenticity are experienced in every space I am invited to enter. My work is centered around three fundamental beliefs; all human beings are imperfect yet capable of greatness, we all long for value, connection, and purpose, and compassionate action is the key to real change.
An HR executive and consultant, executive coach, and speaker, I draw from over 20 years of experience spanning the high-tech, biotech, and hospitality industries, It is my joy also to be the founder and CEO of The Compassionate Collective, a social impact marketplace that creates meaningful opportunities for artists and businesses to participate in delivering a message of hope and compassion to all.
I am a big believer in taking a holistic approach to life. While work is an important part of my work+life ecosystem, it is not the only or most important part. I am so grateful to be a wife of 20+ years, a mom to two dynamic college-age kids, a daughter to aging parents, and a loyal friend. Family time, exploring outdoors, yoga, great coffee, and my two dogs bring me immense joy. I also have the fulfilling pleasure of serving on the board of a local Seattle non-profit, Live Salted.
