Sam has been working reception for the hospital since July 2018. She began working with animals as a volunteer before interning and eventually joining the CAH family. Sam graduated from CSU Chico in 2017 as a Humanities major, but couldn’t ignore the call to help animals in need.

Sam has 1 cat named Poppy and 1 dog named Chloe. Poppy is Sam’s first cat, so she is learning something new every day. Growing up, dogs were the only household pets in Sam’s life until she started bringing random animals home off the street. This included stray cats, a stray dog, a rabbit, 6 parakeets and spiders from the garden. Will the trend continue? We shall see!

In her free time, Sam enjoys listening to true crime podcasts and watching hockey (go Sharks)!
