Care Ministry Coordinator

Hi, I'm Sam.

As one of Pathway’s Care Ministry Coordinators, Sam has a heart to help those have experienced loss of any kind as they navigate grief. She has deep empathy and compassion for those walking through difficult seasons of life, as she knows what it means to be in that place and to need someone to show the way out of the dark. When she’s not serving the people of our church, Sam likes to travel, camp, hike, and sing. (You may have seen her on stage as part of the PCC Worship Team!) She’s also a wife, and a dog-mom to a 15-year-old, toothless, 3 ½ pound yorkie named Mason.

Highlight of the past year:

Buying our teardrop camper and taking several camping trips this past summer/fall

What’s the oldest piece of clothing you own and still wear?

My mom’s 1980’s white roller-skates with hot pink wheels. Obviously, I only wear them when I go skating.

Favorite coffeehouse beverage:

Pour over! No cream or sugar

When people look at you, they would never guess…

I am terrified of being in front of and speaking in front of large groups of people.
