As Senior Associate of Marketing and Communications at Global Impact, Sam works with the Managing Director of Marketing and Communications to manage digital content across the organization. Her main projects include developing social media, managing newsletters and email campaigns, handling website content, and dabbling in graphic design. Raised in the DMV by two New Englanders, she spends her time complaining about hot weather, exploring trails with her dog, keeping her dozens of succulents alive, and trying to squeeze in time to write recreationally on the side.
