After receiving a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Roanoke College and Master’s Degree in International Business from Hawaii Pacific University, Sam became a small business owner and later the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating officer of a non-profit healthcare firm. Sam channeled his passion for healthcare reform into finding more compassionate ways to care for our seniors and helping with maternal and child health in East Africa. Sam currently has his own small business which helps organizations become more successful through developing better business plans and through investing in their employees. As of March 2017, Sam became the first Virginia legislator to no longer accept donations from special interest PACs (Political Action Committees), or from registered lobbyists.
With 17+ years of leadership and management experience, Sam believes strongly in listening to the people and he wants to hear from you. Visit our Contact Us page to get in touch with Sam.
