Meet Samantha Carter!
Samantha Carter has joined the Full Life Ahead family this August as Director of Administration! In addition to management experience, Samantha is a classically trained pianist and singer with a background in Elementary Music Education in the North Carolina Public School System. In her career as an educator, she has had the privilege of being able to have extensive experience working with students with disAbilities in the public school setting, and she loved it! She recently served as the Children's Program Director for the June 2016 Family Weekend Camp, and further fell in love with Full Life Ahead Foundation's vision in providing HOPE to families with young adults and teens with disAbilities.
Samantha looks forward to working with amazing volunteers, driving fundraising campaigns, rocking it out at Family Weekend Camps, and so much more! Her heart is very full, and she cannot wait to be able to take part in serving Full Life Ahead and all of our families in the Birmingham area with the good news of HOPE and encouragement in finding a Full Life Ahead!
