Welcome to Samantha Gores
December 12, 2014
Hi! My name is Samantha Gores (Sam for short) and I am the new Youth Transition Specialist at Independence Inc.! I started in October, and on my first day attended the annual Independent Living Fair. Now, that was an introduction! I’ve enjoyed my brief time here and have spent a lot of it getting to know my amazing co-workers, preparing to provide youth transition classes, as well as studying the Independent Living Movement, disability history, and really, anything I could get my hands on! I am thrilled to be part of the Independence team and look forward to using my skills and creativity to help teach youth how to lead more independent lives.
