Samantha Martinez joined Clausen House in 2022. Having a previous career in teaching and in-home health support, she learned the importance of compassion and care when it comes to advocating 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 become a part of 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.
