Biography

A native of Jamaica, Sam came to the states as a teenager and enlisted in the army after graduating high school, where she served as an active duty soldier for 8 years. During her childhood, she watched her mother struggle with access to care and her interest in caring for women was sparked. It was however, during her time in the service while working on a birthing unit at a military facility, that she discovered her love for nursing and midwifery. She then set a goal to one day become a midwife. 

While on active duty she received her certification through the army and became a LPN. After completing her time in service, she received her Associate Degree in Nursing from Fayetteville Technical Community College in 2014. She then acquired her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Fayetteville State University in 2017. Sam now holds a Master’s degree in Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.

Sam is a wife and mother of 3 children, and is very passionate about women’s health and education. When she is not working, her focus is on her family and spending time with her kids. She realizes how important it is to take care of the woman holistically and the influence that this care and education can have on the family unit.

With her 15 years of medical experiences, 11 of those years were taking care of mothers and babies. She is a breastfeeding advocate and a Certified Lactation Counselor. For the last 7 years she has more specifically focused on postpartum and newborn care. It has been her experience, and she  believes that although much needed care is focused on the pregnant and laboring mother, less emphasis is placed on the very important postpartum phase. She has become very passionate in offering care and support to mother’s during this time. It is with this spirit that she joins the LATCH family where she can continue with the business of taking care of women and offering care for postpartum mood and anxiety disorders.
