First interactions I had with Sam, I wondered what made her join the space. She wasn’t a typical businesswoman. She was very bright, warm, funny as hell, and passionate. Somehow, it didn’t add up to the stiffness I was used to from some of the people in this space, the self-proclaimed influencers, the marketing people, the mooners and traders, and the very opinionated VCs that I would normally meet at events, meetups, or in professional groups.
Sam was different, which made me want to basically adopt her the moment I started exchanging messages with her. I found her enthusiasm for self-learning fascinating. She would accept every feedback, every piece of advice, and go beyond acceptance, all the way to implementation. Her previous background as a hospice nurse made her extremely human, humble, and down to Earth. She often had this addictively explosive positive energy and views on life which are of a rare kind.

Some of the Things We Share in Common…
A personal mission in healthcare, from making it affordable to everyone to making it accessible and universal. Because let’s be honest, everyone deserves a chance to get access to proper healthcare services. She is my first choice as Ambassador for when our health-tech platform hits the US market.
Staying true to one’s values and principles. Which is why it was an easy choice to introduce her to the World Ethical Data Forum and have her onboard as a Researcher and Writer.
Believing in the potential of blockchain as a foundation technology for the future of the Web, Data, and Human2Machine interactions.
Putting up with idiots. From conference organizers that don’t deliver according to promises, to so-called cool employers or clients that don’t pay the invoices, or just drop out of a contract because the person was in the hospital for a few days.
Not giving up! — something she preaches to everyone…
Never reach out your hand unless you’re willing to extend an arm. — Elizabeth Fuller
