Sam graduated from Cambridge University in 2011 with a degree in Natural Sciences. She then went on to train as a secondary Science teacher in Hartlepool, as part of the Teach First programme. Wanting to pursue another of her enthusiasms, sustainable agriculture, Sam went on to complete a PhD at the University of Bristol, focusing on the relationship between ecosystems and agriculture. Sam joined Jamie’s Farm in 2017 as a Visit Co-ordinator at the Monmouth Farm, where she was able to combine many of the things she most enjoyed about her previous roles.
After returning from maternity leave, Sam worked at ImpactEd, a social enterprise that supports education organisations to evaluate their impact, where she worked with a wide range of organisations and charities. Having gained valuable experience in this role, Sam returned to Jamie’s Farm as Impact Manager, where she leads on our impact measurement. Sam has a love of data and information and is always working to make our impact measurement as robust, creative and informative as possible.
Sam now lives in the beautiful Scottish Borders, where she can be found mountain biking, gardening, swimming in the river and making music.
