Samantha Roblin

General Manager

Zog Sports

Samantha has been passionate about company culture from day one. She started her career as a consultant, then moved to the business development and communication teams for wellness startups. As the General Manager of ZogCulture, Samantha combines her business experience with her love of building deeper connections in the workplace. Samantha also is one of five members of the Zog Management Team which drives national strategy across ZogCulture and ZogSports.

Originally from outside of Boston, she loves winter, the outdoors, and of course Boston sports (Go Pats). She’s the eternal optimist, loves a good ice breaker (she calls them “connection games”), appreciates a good dinner party, and can’t resist a warm, soft, partly baked chocolate chip cookie.

Samantha received her B.A. from the University of Rochester in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Certificate in Holistic Health from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

Natalie Simmons

Business Development Associate


Natalie is a die-hard believer in the power of positive employee experiences on the success of a business. After spending three years consulting on social impact strategy for Fortune 500 companies, it was only a matter of time before she found her way to ZogCulture. With a passion for people and connection, she jumps at the opportunity to share what the secret of play can do for you and your company.

When she’s not geeking out over people and culture, you can find Natalie on her yoga mat upside down in a headstand or on the dance floor busting a move to Beyoncé.
