More About Sam:
I am a husband and a Puppy Parent to a fluffy, energetic Groodle (golden retriever x poodle) called Timba. I have worked in schools as a Learning Support Officer and I am a current committee member and Secretary of the local branch of a national professional association, the Australian Psychological Society. Before starting my journey to becoming a psychologist, I was a road cyclist racing for a team in the national road series. I learned a lot about teamwork and trust within teams, and the importance of taking small, consistent steps to reaching goals. I enjoy being active through running, walking the dog, and playing tennis. I am also a passionate gardener and enjoy how nature changes through the seasons. When I get the chance, I love heading to coast and swimming in the waves.

Something people wouldn’t guess about you: I am a crazy plant person. I have run out of space inside and outside my house with all sorts of plants. My favourite indoor plant is a fiddle leaf fig and my favourite outdoor plant is a Japanese maple tree.
