Sam was raised in the small, rural town of Mt. Washington, Kentucky. She grew up boating in the many lakes there and developed an early appreciation and passion for the boating life. Some of her best childhood memories are spending every weekend on the houseboat or catching walleye with her dad on Lake Barkley. As she got older, sports took priority when softball tournaments began to be every weekend and when basketball took her through college at Lindsey Wilson. However, she never lost her passion for being on the water.
When she and her husband decided a change in scenery was necessary, they quit their jobs in Louisville, picked up their 2 dogs and headed for the Sunshine State ready for a fresh start. Her husband, Mitchell, sharing the same passion for the water, accepted a position in the marine industry designing docks and boat lifts. After bartending for a year and a half, Sam decided it was time to dig deep and find her true passion once again, boating. Surrounded by others who share the same passion, Tom George Yacht Group is truly a home away from home.
