One of the benefits of being a member of the PatchWork Collective coworking space is your chance to reach our network of businesses and professional contacts. One way we do that is through feature “Meet our Members” blog posts. In today’s post, we’ll meet Founding Member Samm Wunderlich, who is a recreational therapist for WunderRec.
Meet Founding Member Samm Wunderlich
Samm Wunderlich is an Integrated Wellness Practitioner and owner of WunderRec, a wellness consulting company that focuses on “Bringing Creativity and Play to Everyday.” Samm holds certifications as a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, Brain Injury Specialist, Zentangle Teacher, and SoulCollage Facilitator. Her business provides clients opportunities to create, learn, and grow understanding of themselves through recreational therapy and other modalities using expressive, intuitive, and cognitive arts.
Samm holds a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Therapeutic Recreation from Central Michigan University, with minors in leadership and music. She is currently working on a Masters in Program Evaluation through Michigan State University focusing on the importance of therapeutic play.
As a recreational therapist, she works with seniors, people with brain injuries and developmental disabilities, and others with psychological disorders. Her work takes her all over Southeast Michigan, making the PatchWork Collective a perfect home base.
Hear from Samm
We asked Samm Wunderlich to tell us what keeps her going. She says:
“Getting to help people step outside of their comfort zones both creatively and physically is very rewarding. I especially love getting to challenge people who claim to not be creative and give them a modality to express themselves that they never thought possible.”Samm Wunderlich, WunderRec
When we asked her what brought her to the PatchWork Collective, she said:
“Now that I’m back in school, I have a lot more at-the-computer work. I find that stepping out of my house and into a space where I set the intention to focus helps me get a lot more done. It’s also great to be around people who know a lot on different topics. When I have a question or need to approach something from a different perspective the PatchWork Collective has resources to reach out to.”Samm Wunderlich, WunderRec
The Person Behind the Business
There are few better than Samm at blending work and play. When she’s not on the clock, Samm plays oboe and English horn, is a volunteer board member and performer for the the Detroit Medical Orchestra. Samm is a also a new runner, and has participated in several 5ks when she isn’t playing with various art supplies, board games, or her cats.
