At the beginning of March 2020, Samantha (Sam) DiStefano joined the Vector Solutions family as an IndustrySafe Inside Sales Rep.
It's Sam's responsibility to demonstrate the IndustrySafe safety management software to organizations looking for a way to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their EHS program.
To learn more about Sam outside of her IndustrySafe demos, read this brief Q&A session we had with her.
Where is your hometown?
I grew up in West Chester PA, stayed there till I was about 24 and moved to Naples Florida for about 5 years. Moved back to Philly in October of 2008 just in time to see our Phillies win the World Series!
What did you do before working here?
Before working here I was a Sales Rep for a Brewery based out of Michigan called Dark Horse Brewing Company. I managed 4 states and traveled a lot. The travel got to be a bit much over the years so I took a break from sales for a little and managed a local bar called 12 Steps Down here in South Philadelphia for the past year and a half.
What do you like most about your job?
What I like most about working at IndustrySafe/Vector Solutions is that everyday's a challenge, especially right now with the Covid-19 pandemic happening. We have to coach ourselves each day on how to better do our jobs, and it is teaching me a lot about myself and my abilities to work alone.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
When I am not at work, I enjoy playing pool (Billiards) I am actively on 4 teams and have gone as far as Atlantic City for a chance to get to Las Vegas to actually win money! I also love to spend time outside, beach or mountains, either is my happy place.
