Samantha Martinez joined Clausen House in 2022. Clausen House’s mission resonates with her on a personal level due to being her mother’s post-coma caretaker since 2018. Samantha learned the compassion and care that goes into helping advocate for someone who isn’t able to do so themselves. Samantha attended UC Santa Cruz to pursue dual degrees in Psychology and Art. Post-graduation she searched for work involving non-profits. Due to her past experience with the Sacramento Chapter Rotary Club, she felt confident in her skill set. While looking for a job, she became an art teacher for elementary school children in the San Francisco area but knew her life’s passion was in non-profit work. When the opportunity arose for her to be the Fundraising Director for Clausen House she applied immediately. She is currently acclimating to Clausen House and is eager to grow within her new role and excited for her future here.
