Sam Van Saun
Growing up in Washington DC, Sam sat many an open house with her mom, a top-producing real estate broker on Capitol Hill. With a BA in Economics and Dance from Kenyon College and two advanced degrees, Sam has harnessed her considerable education, professional, and life experience into molding a career that reflects her passion for helping others achieve their dreams.
Sam grew up in Washington, D.C., and spent many summers sailing the Chesapeake Bay and the rivers that surround the Northern Neck peninsula. Following graduation from college, she held leadership positions with various nonprofits, raising money for East African orphanages and overseeing international relief and development services. Sam's concern for social justice and human rights issues extended to a research project that took her to the Middle East. Eventually, after 15 years working in the nonprofit sector and traveling the globe, she relocated to Irvington and a home close to the sailing waters of her childhood adventures.
Sam works out of the Irvington office of Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville. She is the chair of the Irvington Virginia Business Association (IVBA), a board member of the Rappahannock River Yacht Club (RRYC), and an active member of the community. Sam likes to travel in the US and abroad, and often visits family in Alaska. Locally, she enjoys sailing, kayaking, taking long walks with her Portuguese Water Dog, and sharing the beauty of the River Realm with others.
