MEET OUR OPERATIONS COORDINATOR
Have a question for Samantha?
My name is Samantha Laman and I am thrilled to have joined the Cultivate team as the Operations Coordinator! I was raised in Saint Michael, Minnesota and have always been enthralled by nature and the smaller, more fragile beings who surround us humans in our day to day lives.
My interests eventually led me into obtaining a degree in Recreation, Parks, and Leisure Services from Minnesota State University, Mankato, which allowed me to not only dive deeper into my curiosities, but also gave me the tools needed to educate others about the importance of not only taking care of themselves, but the world around them as well. I believe there is great importance and power in the emotion of awe, and that it can be the source of endless core memories for young children. I also believe that the Cultivate team has everything needed to encompass education, love, community, awe and authenticity in a way that will help create a lifetime of learning for each student and their families. Some fun facts about me are that 90% of my family lives in The Netherlands, I used to have 2 pet ducks named Jocelyn & Rolland, and scuba diving is one of my favorite vacation activities!
I am honored to have joined the Cultivate community and can't wait to see what 2022 has in store for us all!
