Empowering Others


Sam’s Story

One word to describe him: determined.

Sam is a John Maxwell Team certified Life Coach and Inspirational Speaker. He is happily married, a lover of jazz music, and dreams for a future where he can continue to find redemption in his story and help others avoid and overcome similar pain and obstacles, while realizing their own dreams.

In high school, Sam found resourceful ways to stay involved in activities his friends were participating, regardless of his disability. For him, inclusion means being acknowledged and utilized, as well as respected for the contribution you make. Learning the skill of resourcefulness so early on led to his career in media being born.

To Sam, being empowered means having the resources, freedom, support, and opportunity to do something meaningful. Sam’s hard work has led to much empowerment, and has cherished memories of serving as the public address announcer at numerous sporting events. Sitting behind the microphone, Sam can maximize his potential and gifting, and take on the significant responsibility of setting the tone and representing a host organization.
