The ThyroidEyeDisease.net Team

Torie Pappas

Torie holds a BA in English and a master of education degree. With experience in meeting people where they are, and a passion for helping others, Torie is very excited to continue to spread education and awareness about different conditions and help to grow and develop communities at Health Union.

Sam Sarube

Sam holds a BA in political science from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Prior to joining HU, she spent several years as the chief of staff to an elected official and worked on multiple political campaigns. As someone who contends with chronic illness, Sam immediately connected with Health Union’s mission and values because she understands the importance of having a community you can turn to when managing a chronic condition. She is passionate about helping others and creating spaces in which people feel supported, understood, and validated.
