With a love of travel and an appetite for adventure, Sam has been an Event Planner for over 15 years and loves creating and influencing new experiences whether it is on the other side of the world or in her own backyard. The places she has called home range from New York City; Melbourne and the northern beaches of Sydney in Australia; the stunning beauty of Jackson Hole; the high mountains of Colorado; the City of Angels; and now she is spreading her wings in the Midwest. With a wide range of experience behind the scenes clients are in good hands with Sam as she weaves her love of culture and exploration into her creative event designs and uses her life experience to build exciting corporate programs and provide innovative solutions to challenges. Sam has served on destination Advisory Boards and participated in Think Tanks for destinations around the world and welcomes the chance to get to know new places or promote the ones she loves. Her international experience began with a year spent backpacking solo in Australia after college, which set the tone for the rest of her adult life. A self-described experience junkie, she brings her dog for most of her North American adventures, criss-crossing the country by car at least 19 times now. Dog #1, Finn, visited all the Lower 48 U.S. States, worked in a hospital for many years and enjoyed exploring trails and bodies of water with his Mom. His travel book, "Finnegan's Garden", is a photo essay of his visits to the Lower 48 States. Dog #2, Gus, is brand new and just beginning his legacy and adventures. You can follow Finn's past adventures and Gus' current adventures on their instagram page @finnlivelove.
