Meet The Lunds behind Simply Sam

Sam Lund CEO and creative director of Simply Sam

Sam Lund

CEO + Creative Director

Sam Lund has helped many people as a full-time interior designer and professional organizer. Sam is originally from Chicago, and came to Utah in 2010 for college. Sam uses her skills learned from obtaining her degrees in psychology, human development, and family studies from the University of Utah to understand what her client’s truly need in their home.  Sam brings empathy and emotional support to every client relationship. The joy you feel when you first see your newly organized space or luxurious living room inspires her to continue transforming lives.

Colby Lund

Co-Owner + Licensed General Contractor

Sam’s husband and business partner, Colby Lund, is a licensed general contractor and enjoys expressing his creativity through carpentry. Originally from North Dakota, he grew up in the construction industry. He enjoyed learning from his Dad who runs a truss company and his uncle who builds major sports arenas. Colby came to Utah to attend college and graduated from the University of Utah with two degrees: psychology and economics. Everyone who meets Colby loves him and doesn’t want to let him go, similar to how Sam felt when they met. Colby enjoys all of the clients he gets to connect with on the job while creating their new home. When he isn’t on a job site or listening to Sam talk about work, he’s enjoying time mountain biking, fishing, or at home with their two dogs.

Sandee Zahn | VP Design + construction

Born and bred in Los Angeles, raised my family in Chicago. I’ve done everything from being a modeling agent, to being a flight attendant, to being a jewelry designer. I’ve always loved designing, and spent my life designing our family homes and helping friends with their spaces. 

In 2020, my daughter and I got the client of a lifetime in Arizona and we worked on the project together. After that, we decided it was best for me to make the move to Utah, after being in Chicago for 30 years, and help my daughter and my son in law run the business. It’s so fun working with my daughter and bringing our creative visions to life! 

Since then, we have completed multiple projects and grown a ton. In my spare time you can find me doing yoga, traveling, and spending time with my family. 

Teriann Mayfield | Director of Organizing

I have worked for Simply Sam for almost 4 years now. I was Sam’s first employee and have loved learning and growing with the company! I direct the organizing team on all our projects. I take pride in my work and use my attention to detail to implement quality control and time management on jobs. I am passionate about making our clients happy and making their homes more stress-free. Outside of work, I love being outdoors and spending time with my husband and 2 teenage daughters!

SHAINA Nacion | Director of operations

I'm Simply Sam's Operations Wizard / resident Rubik's Cube enthusiast. As our only full-time remote worker, I spend most of my time at my standing desk answering Slack messages and figuring out ways to improve our operational efficiency. But when I'm not at my desk you can typically find me crocheting / knitting some cool goth clothes, watching a true crime documentary, roller skating, or thrift shopping.

Lizzie Clower | Warehouse Manager + Organizer

I am originally from England. Lover of cats and sweet treats! I'm in charge of all things regarding products and keeping our warehouse and van up to Simply Sam standards! I also shop for clients' projects, prep for jobs, and make sure we have a solid count for all the products we use!

Chazel Giron | OrGanizing Project Manager + Office Manager

I’ve been with Simply Sam for 3 years now. I do the behind-the-scenes admin work for organizing jobs, like making sure we have our trash removal scheduled. I also make sure everyone's seeing and accepting jobs on the Google Calendar, and schedule lunches for the team on jobs (it's a really awesome perk Sam provides!). I do payroll time corrections and handle requested time off for the team and I also help with the interviews/hiring process with the Director of Organizing, Teriann. I love what I do and it's exciting that every day I get to do something different.

Taigon Singer | Construction Foreman

Originally a carpenter by trade, I now have over half a decade of high-end residential remodeling experience. I’m one of the main liaisons for our variety of professional subcontractors, handling anything from bids to quality assurance, as well as personally addressing anything that falls on the gray area labor side of the remodeling process. When I'm not making your home a more beautiful place to live, you can find me fly fishing or absorbed in a good book!

Samantha Trevino | Marketing + Sales Manager

I'm obsessed with natural wood—substantial, rich, and built to last. Imagine mid-century sideboards, and you've nailed my aesthetic.

But the real deal...old homes. If it looks haunted, I'm all in! I adore the intricate details, the woodwork, the colors, and the love embedded in every unique space. I firmly believe that homes should exude character and creativity.

Beyond design, I'm often immersed in the magic of live music. To me, there's nothing greater on this planet than the energy of a live performance.

KATE ERICKSON | ASSISTANT TO THE VP OF PROJECTS

Hey there! I'm a North Dakota and Minnesota native who made the big move to Utah in 2021. I hold BAs in Environmental Sustainability and Political Science, but my true passion lies in design and creating beauty in every aspect of life.

When I'm not at Simply Sam, you can find me exploring the great outdoors, teaching dance, or enjoying some quality time with my adorable cats. Life is all about balance and finding joy in the little things! 

Sabrina Westover | Organization + Design Consultant

I lived in Oahu for 4 years and consider it a second home since I have family there also. For the majority of my life, I worked as a nanny because I love kids, cooking, cleaning, and maintaining a home. That quickly translated into my love for organizing and design which I am now going to school for. Seeing our clients happy and excited when we finish the job is my favorite part of working for Simply Sam! It feels so rewarding to offer organizing solutions that will make their lives easier! I also love seeing the spaces that we design become completely transformed into something beautiful, polished, and well-thought-out. I love that Simply Sam offers solutions for anything design and organizing-related since those have always been top priorities for my own home. It also really helps that the whole team uplifts and supports each other and you can tell we love what we do! I’m expecting my first born (baby boy) end of March and couldn’t be more excited for this next stage of my life!

Claire Amicone | ORGANIZATION + DESIGN CONSULTANT

I love organizing!! The satisfaction at the end of the day when a project is finished and everything has a home and is organized. The label maker is my favorite tool of the trade. It’s the final step in the organization process. It gives the space a finished look and everyone can easily see where things are. Fun fact: I used to play the harp when I was younger. Both my older sisters play the harp as well. Growing up at home it was nice hearing harp music playing when we would practice.

kara Burrell | ORGANIZATION + DESIGN CONSULTANT

My favorite thing about working at Simply Sam is organizing, but also working with everyone on this team! Everyone is so hard-working and dedicated to making every space we touch 10000% better than when we arrived. I love how positive and supportive we are of each other, which makes for such a happy and empowering work environment. Lighting is probably my favorite home decor item. It's such an important element in setting the mood in any space. And of course, the label maker is the most satisfying final touch for any organized space. A bit about me: I’m an artist! I draw, paint, sculpt, etc. Within the last year, pottery has become a major part of my life. It’s my therapy and happy place. 

Priscilla Falatea | ORGANIZATION + DESIGN CONSULTANT

COMING SOON

reagan mathews | 
PErsonal Assistant

Every workday looks a little different for me, but I get to be a helping hand wherever I am needed. I have experienced a little of every department at Simply Sam, and even with the sister company, Simply Elevated. My favorite work days are when I get to work with the design team and see first hand the transformation process or when I get to work in the retail store. I am also a full-time student at the University of Utah and I love to be super involved on and off campus. I love all things fashion, design, travel, and horseback riding. I am excited to see what the future holds but for now I am just enjoying learning more about the people and processes all around me! Simply Sam has given me so many wonderful opportunities, and I am so grateful to be able to work with such amazing people.
