Sam Winter

I'm from Arcata, CA, and I'm a CSU, Chico alumni and second-year graduate student in the Marriage and Family Therapy program. I've always known I wanted to work closely with others, and I've always felt passionate about promoting equity, which led me to my position in the Academic Coaching program. Being an Academic Coach has provided me experience working one-on-one with students to help them meet their goals, which has been invaluable for me as I work towards my career as a therapist. It's so validating for me to see the impact the Coaching Program has on students. I love seeing students manage and navigate barriers that may have seemed insurmountable to them in the past. And a little about me: I spend a lot of my free time as most college students do- connecting with friends, watching Netflix, relaxing, reading - I'm also a huge NBA fan and follow it closely!
