Who we are
I Can Jump Puddles was founded by Sam Boag, a qualified physiotherapist with more than 20 years of experience in the health and disability services sector, both as a therapist and manager. Sam has a deep understanding of the NDIS, and is a passionate advocate in helping those with additional needs access their local community and feel included. Sam has been involved in the rollout and implementation of the NDIS since its inception in South Australia, and she has strong relationships with a variety of local service providers. She is a kind, caring, and knowledgeable expert on all things NDIS. Prior to relocating to South Australia in 2006 she was the owner and founder of a children’s gross motor and movement program, Ready Steady Go Kids.
Sam, through her work at I Can Jump Puddles, supports a number of charities including The Hospital Research Foundation and Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation.
When Sam is not “jumping puddles” at work she loves spending time with her husband and three beautiful young adult and teenage children.
Sam loves to do things by extreme and as been a marathon runner, ironman triathlete and cyclist. She has had the privilege of competing in the New York Marathon and representing Australia twice in the Hawaii Ironman World Championships. Sam loves AFL and is a loyal lifetime Melbourne “Demon’s” supporter.
Where would you expect to find Sam if she has a holiday? Adventure dream….. backpacking through any foreign country with lots of mountains to climb, or for relaxation anywhere that has sun, sand, surf and a palm tree, a hammock, and a good list of tropical cocktails.
Sam’s love for South Australia includes trail running in the hills, the Central Markets, and the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
