My name is Samantha Burgess, but I go by Sam. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2018 with a Bachelors of Art in Medical Anthropology and a minor in Nutritional Science, and in 2021 with my Bachelors of Science in Health Education and Health Promotion from Arizona State University. I currently hold a certification as a Health Educator Specialist (CHES) that allows me to promote, improve, and protect the health of people. I am passionate about helping others understand their medical choices and health through understanding of culture, empathy, compassion, education, promotion, and advocacy. I started to work at the Rivkin Center because I find the reproductive system fascinating, I love to teach and help others learn and understand their bodies, and I believe in the power of education to help promote the wellbeing, wellness, and health. During my free time, I love to cook, woodburn, write/read, learning to play golf, and spending time with my nephew.
