Sam was born and raised in Boulder, CO where an active lifestyle was mandatory. Growing up she was a competitive equestrian and an avid skier. After attending the University of South Carolina and obtaining a Hospitality and Tourism degree, she lived in NYC for a little over two years before the mountains called her back home to Colorado. During a four-year stint in Denver, her weightlifting background came front and center and she competed in a powerlifting competition! Soon thereafter, she got her NASM certification and coached HIIT, Strength & Conditioning, a high school athlete fundamentals course and personal training sessions. She has been in the valley for over three years now as a Ski School Coordinator at Buttermilk. You can find Sam on the ski slope, hiking, biking or camping when she’s not in the gym.
