"Don't change them; let them change you."
-Pam Janak

Sammy graduated high school from Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial and was unsure what she was going to do after. She decided to follow her older sister to Harry Meyering by applying to be a Direct Support Professional. For over ten years, Sammy has shown dedication to her professional growth and to Harry Meyering, becoming a DSP Lead, then a House Coordinator, and now in her current position as a SLS Program Manager.

Sammy lives in Mapleton with her husband and two children. In her spare time, Sammy enjoys tending to her house plants and binge-watching Friends. Pam Janak, a former Harry Meyering employee, once told Sammy, “Don’t change them; let them change you.” Sammy keeps this in her mind while supporting the individuals with whom she works.
