Samantha - Practicum student, staff person, and now: Marathon Volunteer Coordinator!


Sam started with YPSN years ago as a practicum student, and then we were lucky enough to have her work here for a while. These days, Sam is coordinating details for our participation in the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon!

Tell us 3 things about you, the first 3 things that come to mind
1. I have the cutest little fluffy-faced white dog who's always waiting for me at home with a smile & lots of love.
2. I am committed to making a difference in my community.
3. I want to travel... everywhere, but my top 3 are Australia, Greece and Thailand.

How did you first become involved with YPSN?
I came to YPSN for my third year practicum. I researched and learned more about it. It was tiny, and so homey - now they can't get rid of me!

What is your role now?
I volunteer whenever I can & stay involved with the community any way I can.

What is your favourite thing about YPSN?
I love YPSN - when you walk into Ypsn you feel like you are at home. There is something in the air, the energy and vibe of Ypsn is something I strive to incorporate in my day to day life. Words can't express it. I am also inspired on a regular basis by YPSN's dedication to serve, empower and celebrate young parent families in our community and how amazing these families are. It's beautiful to be a part of, so thank you YPSN!
