Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care.

Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource!

Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
