Founer and CEO of ParentTV
Sam Jockel started out as a social worker working for many years in schools. In 2010 after having her first child Sam launched the Facebook page ALDI Mum which grew from nothing to over 170,000 followers. In 2012 she co-founded Social Media Agency Good Funny Smart and established another online community called School Mum which has grown to over 460, 000 followers. In 2017 she ventured into the tech startup world and launched ParentTV a video streaming platform personalizing parenting advice from the world’s leading research-based parenting experts direct to parents via any digital device. Having been married to an elementary school teacher Sam also became aware that parents are showing up to schools and childcare centers asking for parenting help when those institutions exist to educate children and are not equipped with all of the help parents are asking for. ParentTV supports individual parents and works alongside childcare centers and schools all over the globe as an on-demand video resource supporting staff and parents with the best research-based advice available.
