Samantha describes herself as a Communicator, Writer and Life Enthusiast. She is currently a Communications Manager at Jefferson Health in Philadelphia, PA and holds 10 years of communications, and public relations experience working with organizations of all sizes. As a Certified Applied Positive Psychology Practitioner, Samantha is now bringing the pioneering change of positive psychology to Jefferson Health as part of a movement to increase productivity, empower individuality, and decrease stress in the workplace.
With a background in corporate America leading executive communications, she earned a reputation for being able to humanize the way leaders relate to their employees. She created employee experiences infused with human emotion and authenticity. This vulnerability in storytelling, while not a traditional way of communicating in business, continued to propel Samantha toward finding a way to bring humanity to mundane, negative or toxic cultures.
Within and outside of corporate America, Samantha has also led “happiness workshops” for young women looking to find themselves, deal with stress and prioritize self care.
Samantha’s experience in CAPP only fueled her further appreciation of the power of being human and how expressing ones individuality can empower us at home and at work. She has totally redefined her view of what success consists of based on these new insights – and is now bringing this to people so they can show up as their authentic selves and effectively navigate any situation life throws their way.
Combined with a certification in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Samantha has taken her new definition of success and added key lessons from CAPP to create a new program for companies looking to improve their employee engagement. Her program is founded on our foundational knowledge of the brain and body; how to apply that knowledge to deal with negative and stressful scenarios; how to generate daily awareness of our thoughts; and how to build positive mindsets, strengths and habits. This is about prioritizing employee needs – and in turn, will bring numerous benefits to any company struggling to motivate, inspire or engage their employees.
Samantha resonates deeply with the idea that “life’s journey is about un-becoming everything that isn’t really us so we can be authentically who we were meant to be in the first place.” She has built her program using scientific positive psychology interventions so people can unlearn beliefs and habits that don’t serve them well, and re-learn how to create their own formula to be successful and flourish in the workplace.
There’s no doubt that Samantha will have an enormous positive impact on Jefferson through her program, and will continue to spread messages of empowerment and positivity to individuals, young women, and organizations.
