Patient Care Coordinator
Sam is the bubbly voice you will hear on the other end of the phone when you call our Fairmont and Estherville clinics. Sam has a lot ofIce working with the public (she once interned for the Mayor of Mankato!) and caring for patients. In fact, she first learned about our clinic while working with one of our patients in a memory care unit. She wants our patients to know they are not just a number to us—she takes time to get to know each patient and often their families too! According to Sam, “our patients know we stand by our work and our word.” Her attention to detail and her dedication to learning about the field of audiology keeps our clinics running Smoothly.
Sam lives in Fairmont, Minnesota, with her fiancé, Paul, and their son, Waylon. She enjoys walking the family dog (Miss Mabel), playing sports (hockey, soccer and lacrosse, to mention a few!) and is an avid cook! Her family enjoys time spent at the family cabin around the campfire, listening to the loons and simply being outdoors.
