While in the process of completing her Masters degree, Samantha worked at Hope+Me: Mood Disorders Association of Ontario in the Peer Support program. As a Peer Support Worker, Samantha used her warm and compassionate personality to help people cope effectively with their daily challenges, increase their self-awareness, foster hope, and find their inner strength.
