Sam Roecker is originally from upstate New York, attended Providence College for undergrad, received her Master’s in Global Health from Georgetown, and is most recently a graduate of UPenn’s accelerated nursing program. She is currently pursuing an advanced practice nursing degree at Penn while continuing to chase personal bests on the road. After moving to Philadelphia, she joined the Philadelphia Runner Track Club in the pursuit of achieving the Olympic Trials Qualifying Standard in the Marathon. Most notably, she placed 19th in the 2016 NYC Marathon, 5th at the 2017 Broad Street Run, and qualified for the Olympic Trials by posting a 2:38:11 for second place at the 2017 Hartford Marathon. She is now chasing the Olympic A standard (2:37:00) and is extremely grateful for the ongoing support of PhilaMassages!
