Member Spotlight: Sam Barns
Deavor is filled with creative co-workers and game changers, and Sam Barns is all of those things, but also a world shaker.

Sam works for Better Lives, an economic development organization focused on improving student health, education, and economic opportunities. Better Lives has taken on projects in agriculture, microfinance, and primary school infrastructure globally. The organization has allowed Sam to partner with others around the world, but he is specifically responsible for collaborating with his partners in East Africa, mostly Tanzania.

Last year, Sam lived in Tanzania, but his new schedule has him going to Tanzania for one month out of every three. So for those two other months, we are honored to have Sam creating Better Lives – doing precisely what his organization is called – right out of Deavor. Sam loves the new challenges and endless adventures that Better Life allows him to experience. So when Sam isn’t half way across the world or at Deavor, you can find him exploring outside in Nashville.

Get to know this rad dude; he is filled with some crazy, awesome stories from his adventurous career and life. But until then, this one’s on the house:

Once upon a time when Sam lived in Tanzania, he owned a goat. But before he moved back to the states, Sam and the village he lived in had a big goat roast party and ate it. The end.
