Sam Hendricks

Communications Specialist, shopDisney & Disney store North America

As a child, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I’d always say that I wanted to be a Disney character. While I may not be living my most magical life in the latest animated Disney film, it would be remiss of me not to say that my career dreams have come true. As Communications Specialist for shopDisney and Disney store North America, I have the privilege of creating magic both for audiences online as well for our Cast Members and Guests in brick and mortar stores. My Disney career started in 2009 as a Cast Member at my local Disney store, and I’ve loved every moment in the various roles I’ve held with the company since then.

Fitting for my experience in Consumer Products, I spend a good chunk of my time outside of work getting hyped about new Disney merchandise and deciding what items I won’t be able to resist buying. I have a growing collection of Oogie Boogie plush that I am especially in love with!
