The SAM’s Team

Sam Brown, Owner

From an early age, Sam displayed a passion for helping others.  After several years with EMS, transitioned to 911 dispatch. While he loved the excitement of the job, it wasn’t his true passion. After a stint in the hospitality industry,  discovered aromatherapy, and his true calling. In 2016 he began to conceptualize how he might use his love of holistic health methods to help and educate others. In 2017 that concept came to fruition when Sam opened SAM’s. It is Sam’s goal to be the go-to source for alternative and holistic health and wellness in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. Supporting the local economy and bringing you the highest quality products, as well as providing education on the benefits and uses of each product is Sam’s number one goal. Sam is currently a Reiki Master Teacher, and enjoys continuing his education!

Monica Tripp, Social Media/Marketing

Sam and Monica met in 2009 while working at 911. The two became fast friends and when Sam decided to open SAM’s Apothecary, Monica was his first choice to run his social media and marketing campaigns. Monica holds a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Mass Communications and is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Strategic Communication. While holistic health is a new field for Monica, she prides herself on the scholarly research she puts into each blog, and experiences first-hand each product and method she blogs about. Accuracy and education are her first priorities and she wants SAM’s to be your go-to stop for information and questions about holistic products and practices.
