“We invited Sam to come work with our women’s team for a weekend in the fall. I knew it was going to be a special weekend and Sam hit it out of the park. Her vulnerability, honest and real journey into the women she has become has ignited a fire in our women. Our weekend journey was filled with releasing the inner critic, diving deep into themselves as individuals all while cultivating a culture for THIS team. She’s able to navigate conversation because of her sincere honest and gentle demeanor that makes everyone feel comfortable.

I’ve been extremely fortune to have Sam in my life for 15 years. She has been a rock and guiding light for so many. Her passion and positivity is infectious and our women have benefited grateful from her services. I can’t wait to have her work with more of our teams in the future. She is the best of the best!”

"Often times it is difficult to connect with teenage audiences. During Samantha's "Dreams Come True" presentation at the Bay State Games, I looked at the audience and not one teenager was on their phone. They were listening so intently to her.  Samantha's story is a must hear for any athlete, coach, and parent!

I've had the opportunity to work with, and listen to, many guest speakers. It is clear that Samantha loves what she does and her connection to the athletes is genuine.

I'm so happy we are able to connect with Samantha and have her talk to our athletes about her journey from competing in the Bay State Games, as a high school athlete, to winning an Olympic gold medal!  Samantha was so easy to work with and very accommodating to meet as many athletes as possible."

"Sam Livingstone was invaluable to our team. She challenged us to dive deep and explore who we are as individuals and as a team. Sam's open and approachable demeanor allowed us to be our true selves, and to engage in important conversations. Sam is not only relatable and engaging, but is also incredibly empathetic to the challenges of the modern-day athlete. We are so thankful to have Sam as a resource moving forward."
