About Samantha Giesler

Hiya! My name is Sam and I'm originally from Lisle, Illinois. I moved down to Carbondale, Illinois, in 2005 to attend Southern Illinois University, and have never left. I graduated in 2009, with a Bachelor's Degree in Mortuary Science and Funeral Service. After college I completed my year-long apprenticeship and became "street legal" as my boss jokingly calls it. I am now in my second year of being a fully licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer.

I am sooo excited to be biking across the country for such a great cause. For the past two years, I have watched my boyfriend, Alex Pearlman, and many others from Carbondale complete this journey: once on the Transam and once on the Northern Tier. This last year, I was able to take the time to visit Alex on the road when he passed through Illinois. I got to see the impact they had on the people they met and how appreciative people were that they were riding for this important cause.  I was so proud of them that they inspired me to embark on my own jouney to help raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. I can't wait to go to Bar Harbor and start this adventure!
