Ski towns are in Sam’s blood. A fifth-generation native of Aspen, Colorado, Sam graduated from CU Boulder with a major in Psychology.  She began a career in human resources, which included stints at The Little Nell, Aspen Skiing Company, and Jager Di Paola Kemp. She was part of the team that opened the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch.


Sam and her family moved to Park City from Lake Tahoe in 2014 when husband Allen became the GM of Montage Deer Valley.  She is a passionate volunteer and advocate for Park City’s public schools. She has been a PCEF Ambassador to Jeremy Ranch Elementary School since 2015, and joined the PCEF Board in 2017. She has been on the Jeremy Ranch School Community Council from 2015 – 2017, and is now on the Ecker Hill School Community Council. She has volunteered at the People’s Health Clinic, updating their employee manual.


Sam is mom to Abby, PCHS Class of 2023, and Grahame, PCHS Class of 2025. When she is not driving her kids to their myriad activities, Sam enjoys hiking, fishing, and reading. Her family loves to ski and travel.
