The Journey

Samantha Crowe, PhD, began her career as a neuroscientist. She earned a doctorate degree with distinction from Georgetown University studying brain injury. Samantha then became a research associate at the National Institutes of Health where she studied emotions and decision making. After more than 10 years in academic research, Samantha decided to pursue an opportunity to use her expertise and strengths at a global consulting firm. As a consultant, she built a multimillion dollar portfolio, developed effective teams, and advised military health leaders. Samantha then advanced to an internal consulting role at one of Washington, DC’s most influential industry trade associations, serving as a chief of staff and senior advisor to executive leaders.

In mapping her professional journey looking forward, Samantha could not ignore her heart any longer. She realized her most meaningful contributions involved empowering people and helping them achieve their dreams. She was inspired by the power of professional coaching in her own life. And, she knew that fulfillment meant aligning her strengths, passion, and life purpose. And so began the story of Evalia Consulting.
