Samantha Moore is the Business Administrator and IT Manager of Sierra Foot & Ankle.
Samantha was raised in Guatemala, where she spoke Spanish as her native language. After obtaining her BS in Electrical Engineering at the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico, she returned to Guatemala where she started to pursue her passion of computers. Her move to Silicon Valley in 1984 gave her the opportunity to foster her creative side in software. After many years of hard work and the sale of a successful startup company developing software for the financial industry, she moved to Nevada in pursuit of a simpler life.
Meeting Dr. Victoria Melhuish in 2000 was a turning point in Samantha’s life. Melhuish needed someone with computer knowledge to take her clinic in the right direction, and Samantha wanted to focus on something different. Starting as a medical assistant, Samantha learned the ins and outs of Podiatry and Melhuish’s clinic. With Melhuish’s guidance, Samantha developed software to run the clinic, and to provide analysis for key management decisions.
Among her various hobbies, Samantha is also a musician. She is the bass player for Mo’z Motley Blues Band (www.MozMotleyBlues.com), which performs at local venues year round.
