Samantha has been the Volunteer Coordinator since the first SpeakUp event in May 2014, and was recently hired by the CKG Foundation. As a neighbor and friend of the Gallaghers, she knew Cameron personally, and fully supported Cameron’s brilliant idea to SpeakUp about teen depression and anxiety. Samantha’s mother lives with bipolar disorder and Samantha knows first-hand how important it is to support each other and share each other’s stories. Knowing you are not alone as you go through difficult times is essential to healing.
When Samantha is not at the CKG Foundation, she loves spending time with her husband, Joel, and their two children, Amanda and Cole. Samantha enjoys playing tennis, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
