Transitional Aged Youth Division Director
Samantha earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at California State University, Fresno and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at National University. She was attracted to Aspiranet because she wanted to work with families in a proactive manner. Samantha joined the agency in 1999 and enjoys learning something new every day. She feels honored to have been part of building and running programs that serve young adults and fortunate to have provided both direct and supervisory services for diverse foster care and transitional housing programs over the past two decades.
“I appreciate the feeling of family among Aspiranet staff and that our core values inform the way in which we approach our work. Respect absolutely has to be present in order to work with our young adults in a way that communicates unconditional positive regard. When there is mutual respect everything else falls into place as needed.”
