Samantha started with the company in its infancy, as the Senior Sales Coordinator. She has returned as our Operations Manager. She compliments our team well and provides a unique skill set to the company. Not only does she refine operational systems and processes for the company, but she concentrates on accessing and improving the company's operational effectiveness. By far, Samantha's most illustrious skill is her work on inter and outer office communication flow and efficiency.
Without doubt, Samantha's favorite part of her job is the opportunity to support her team and employees. She works diligently to ensure that the team is cohesive, qualified, proficient, economical, and well encouraged. Samantha accomplishes this through team building exercises, team training, webinar training, one-on-one training, employee and employer evaluations, and an "open door" policy, not just in theory, but in practice. Her previous work and education in social work has proven to be a valuable asset to this position and to the company.
In the past, Samantha Edwards was a legal advocate for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, worked on her masters of social work at IUPUI, did her undergraduate work in social work at USI, and worked for many years as a volunteer crisis hotline responder for a local domestic violence shelter.
She still pursues her passion of empowering survivors by being a board member for the state-wide low-income legal assistance organization Indiana Legal Services, a crisis responder for the local Safe Place, and a volunteer as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), working with the children involved with the Department of Child Services in her local county.
Samantha is excited to be working with a company that is so focused on ethical practices and mindfulness. She knows that her experience, education, and passion will be complimentary to Rebel Herbs' vision and mission.
