Sanam received her B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Houston Downtown. Before joining ChildBuilders, Sanam worked in the mental health field for nine years. During this time, she saw the impact of mental illness on those receiving care and their families. This experience made her realize the importance of prevention, which is why the vision of ChildBuilders resonated with her. From the mission statement itself, she knew it was the perfect opportunity because her passion in life has always been to help others in an uplifting, enriching, and loving way.
