Since joining the Doc Wayne team in September 2019, Sam has served as a Therapeutic Mentor (TM) and Community Coach. In his TM role, Sam works with youth 1:1 to help them reach their therapeutic goals. As a Community Coach, he partners with schools and after-school centers to facilitate therapeutic, social-emotional learning (SEL) focused programming.
Sam received his B.A. in psychology with honors from College of the Holy Cross. Prior to Doc Wayne, he worked with youth in Seattle, where he merged his passions for the outdoors, mindfulness and youth development. Sam has played basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis and ultimate frisbee at various stages in his life, but his original love will always be table tennis. He spends his free time playing in LGBTQ flag football and dodgeball leagues and tending to his garden.
