Samee Teixeira’s love for the game of baseball pushed her to learn the game at a high level and led her to become the first female varsity baseball head coach in Hawaii. In addition, as a behavioral therapist, Samee coaches in a unique way that integrates therapy with athletes developing them into better individuals while promoting self-confidence.
Inadvertently making history and breaking down gender roles, Samee has become a true Difference Maker with the care she has for all her players and her ability to lift each player to become their best selves.
The Difference Maker is presented by Cutter Ford.
