She moved to Austin in 2005 where she attended the University of Texas and graduated in 2008 with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and Biology minor.
Sam earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from The University of Health Science Center San Antonio in 2012 and has since gone on to become a certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist through the American Physical Therapy Association. She joined the Austin Sports Medicine Team in 2014 and is Clinic Director for the central PT clinic.
This coach’s daughter turned coach’s wife spends her spare time following her husband’s high school basketball team and caring for their growing family.
