Welcome to the Van Saun Financial Blog.

My name is Samantha (Sam) Van Saun, Financial Professional. This is the official blog for my firm, Van Saun Financial. I look forward to sharing my experiences and lots of helpful information with you — no matter what stage of life you're in. With a BA in Economics and Dance from Kenyon College and two advanced degrees, I have harnessed my education, professional and life experience into molding a financial services firm that reflects my passion for helping others achieve their dreams. 

I 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, I held leadership positions with various nonprofits, raising money for East African orphanages and overseeing international relief and development services. My concern for social justice and human rights issues extended to a research project that took me to the Middle East. Eventually, after 15 years working in the nonprofit sector and traveling the globe, I relocated to Irvington and a home close to the sailing waters of my childhood adventures.

Today, I channel my energy and enthusiasm into working with local business owners, individuals and families, helping them prepare for retirement, protecting their families and businesses from the unexpected, and building a strong financial foundation for future growth.   

If you don't see a topic you're interested in covered in this blog, please reach out to me at Sam@VanSaunFinancial.com, or call me at 804-438-8219. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best regards, Sam
