Samantha's Story

Farmer | Facilitator | Writer

Hi, I am Samantha.

I am leadership cultivator guiding individuals to claim the natural born leader within themselves. I was a 2016 Minnesota Teacher of the Year and have a Master's in Educational Leadership. My approach to leadership focuses self-leadership, healthy relationships, and transferable skills to improve our lives. Every experience I design incorporates personal wellbeing, farm culture, mindbody science, and spirituality. From a farm in rural Minnesota, I am a small-town girl with a world-wide vision to build resilient farm leadership and personal empowerment for next generation farm leaders.

My job is unique.

My mission is to help people design their own personal ecosystems by rewriting society’s unwritten rules and overcoming limiting expectations to unleash skills as natural born leaders. I aim to be a voice of truth, honor, and freedom and an unwavering, vibrant source of hope, courage and change that will empower our future farmers to discover a new way to lead, influence and thrive using the powers of physiology, spirituality, and storytelling to transform their world.

The world is in need.

We live in a very different world from yesterday.  Where fear of the unknown, unethical leadership and a lack of trust are prevalent voices in the minds of many.  It’s no wonder that the future of our communities is filled with angst and trepidation. How do we even begin to create a groundswell of change when the unwritten rules of our societal system, cultural beliefs and educational system have slowly eroded over the years?

It's quite simple.

As we think about the future of the next generations, the status quo needs a new voice. It’s time to stop seeking out and start looking within to create new models of living and leading that are rooted in foundations other than assumptive narratives and limiting beliefs.  What if we actually looked at personal ecosystems rather than societal systems to give rise to hope? 

It matters!

To all of the young-spirited people looking for something more, this is our time. I speak your language; I feel your struggles and I hear your stories. I too, have been there myself, more than you know.  Changing leadership paradigms is hard, it’s rewarding, it’s necessary, and it’s a gift. This is the most pivotal time in our modern history to shape who we become and how we make our mark on this world by removing the cultural norms and societal expectations that hold us back. Patterns and cycles are about to be broken, accountability and intentional action are paving the way, and collective wellness, faith and community are inspiring us as we rewrite those new rules.

At our core, we are rising, we are emerging and we are unstoppable.

Now rise. Go change the world.
