Samantha comes to us from Malawi. She has lived in the US for 10 years and has been a Philadelphia resident for all 10 of them. She graduated from Chestnut Hill College with a BS in Human Services in 2018 and pursued an MS in Clinical and Counseling Psychology, with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Therapy from Chestnut Hill College as well, graduating in 2020.
Samantha has 7 years’ experience with the School District of Philadelphia working as a classroom assistant and 2 years’ experience working as a pre-school teacher. She has a year’s experience as an Uplift intern and is now excited to be an official Uplift employee! Her internship experience with Uplift provided her with the opportunity to work with different youth populations, including justice involved youth. The lessons she learned while working with these youth only served to fuel her passion for social justice. During her internship, Samantha also discovered a passion for research and studying data trends. She is excited to see where this new interest will take her and how it can be used in her work with the families and youth of Philadelphia.
