Client Support Specialist, TeamLMI
Samantha’s passion for psychology began in her high school AP Psychology class when she read Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. She was drawn to the idea that intelligence matters less than previously thought and may come in more forms than we realize. She plans to obtain her Ph.D. in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. She enjoys studying Organizational Psychology and how relationships among employees affect productivity and the performance of businesses.
Samantha graduated from Penn State University in 2021 with a degree in Psychology. Prior to Penn State, Samantha attended Juniata College for two years and studied Biochemistry while playing for their women’s volleyball team. At Penn State, she played on their Club Volleyball team and served as a Thon Chair, helping to raise funds for families that have children with cancer.
In addition to working for TeamLMI, she is a club volleyball coach at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim, PA. She coaches a 15u regional team. Her favorite part of coaching is watching the girls learn and seeing them work together as a team. She feels as though she learns as much from them as they do from her.
Samantha enjoys spending her free time outside hiking, hunting, fishing, or golfing. In addition, she loves to travel; her favorite place that she has been is Cuba. She also enjoys reading nonfiction, her favorite authors are Malcolm Gladwell, Angela Duckworth, and Adam Grant.
