Sam has been in the valley for nearly 7 years and prior to PAWS, Sam worked at Spring Creek Animal Hospital where she quickly realized how much she truly enjoyed helping and working with people and their furry family members! Sam is also a passionate runner and a bit of a bird nerd. She loves volunteering with the High School Cross Country and Track teams as well as with the Conservation Team over at Teton Raptor Center. Sam is excited to continue learning more about animal behavior and apply it to assist PAWS in helping pets and their people in any form she can! Sam is mother to Oso the pup, a very happy-go-lucky guy who loves nothing more than to play the day away and snuggle up with his humans.
