Food cordinator

Samantha Martin


Hi, I’m Samantha (Sam), and I’ve been in the childcare industry for almost 20 years. I started out at an Out of School Care when I was only a teenager, and I’ve been working in long day care as a food coordinator since 2008. I also hold a Diploma of Children’s Services.

At Olive Grove, I enjoy sharing healthy nutritious food with the children and getting them involved in the cooking process to help them develop an interest in cooking and in healthier foods.

At home, I love to use homegrown produce and herbs from my garden and testing out new recipes on my family to bring to the Centre.

I live with my husband, two beautiful girls and a fluffy fur baby who keep me very busy at home.
