Samantha is the Office Administrator with the American Indian Cancer Foundation. Growing up, many of her friends and family had in some way been affected by cancer. With it being a large presence in Samantha’s life, it led her to work in the healthcare field. While working alongside individuals every day, many who were in the dark about what was happening, it gave Samantha the drive to find a career where she could help them. When the opportunity presented itself to join the AICAF team, it felt like a calling. Though most of her work is behind the scenes, Samantha’s past experiences give her the drive and motivation to support our staff so they can further provide American Indian and Alaskan Native people with access to resources and information they need about prevention, early detection, and treatment.
