Hello there, I’m Dr. Sam!


I am a DEI Strategist & Systems Analyst, and founder of DSRD Consulting. Over the last 12 years, I’ve used my analytical and strategy development skillset to merge diversity, equity, and inclusion with business operations and development for companies and organizations across many industries. Including higher education, the federal government, accreditation, and the non-profit sector.

I worked with employees to enhance their Global DEI strategies across the entire North America and Globally in the UK and Portugal. Companies span the tech industry (Meta, Noom, Lyft), Federal Governments in other countries, and the Marketing and Communication fields.

As a strategist, my top priorities are to:


Outline: Offer guidance and education about gaps in your business systems, processes, and policies.

Develop: Create a detailed, data-informed, goal oriented plan tailored to your company.

Partner: Serve as an advisor and thought partner to guide you along your journey to incorporate equity into your business operations.
