A native of Boston, she has called Honolulu home since 2004. Sam has won several awards including Pacific Business News “40 Under 40”class of 2019 and Women Who Mean Business’s "Women To Watch" for her service as a mentor and role model for other professionals throughout her company and the business community.
Sam puts a strong emphasis on engaging and introducing new opportunities and strategic business relationships to those whom she meets.

She helps business owners make the best use of these connections through the various stages of a business from start up, to growth and eventual succession. She is a firm believer that "No one cares how much you know unless they know how much you care."

One of her many passions is helping to grow trade association memberships, particularly among the next generation of leaders, to positively influence business policy and support family and multi-generational businesses. She currently serves on over a dozen committees.
In her free time, she likes to relax, enjoy the beach and take advantage of Honolulu’s urban life. She also loves to travel and has been to over fifty countries and territories. She is very close to her family in Boston and travels back to the east coast several times a year.
