Samantha joined the CWE team in January of 2017. She graduated from Connecticut College with a BA in Gender and Women’s Studies and Sociology. Prior to joining CWE, she worked full-time as a counselor at a women’s health clinic, assisting women in choosing the best services for them, making sure each individual felt comfortable and received the best care possible. Sam has always had a passion for non-profit work, whether it was raising money annually for Relay for Life, volunteering at a local homeless shelter in the city she went to college, helping to train staff on best practices, or volunteering her time to maintain the social media sites for a woman focused non-profit based out of San Diego, California in order to boost followers and increase brand recognition. Samantha is excited to play an active role in maintaining CWE’s mission to foster financial independence and empowerment in women.
