Sam joined Park City Community Foundation in 2017. Originally from Michigan, Sam relocated to Park City in 2011 with the plan to be a ‘ski bum’ for a season or two. She worked as a ski and snowboard instructor for a few winter seasons before finding the luxury hotel industry, working at both Montage and Stein Eriksen Lodge. Her first winter season in Park City and the following summer cemented her love of the mountains, the town, and the people of this community. In pursuit of doing something with more long-term purpose, Sam joined the Park City Community Foundation in 2017 and has been helping the fundraising team grow the annual fundraising program ever since. In her spare time, she enjoys everything the Park City area has to offer, including mountain biking, wake surfing and hiking with her husband, daughter, and pup in the summer, and skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing in the winter.
