Life beyond work

Sam is mum to two young and spirited kids, and fancies herself as a talented Brio train set engineer and Paw Patrol aficionado.

When not at work, she and her husband enjoy weekend adventures in the outdoors, and are often seen exploring Melbourne’s surrounds, with the kids in a Dutch cargo bike. The family dog, Pinot (Noir), also deserves a mention, providing infinite furry cuddles after the workday is done.
