Samantha Stephens started eating oatmeal in college to help her live on a budget and help shed the "Freshman 15". At the time, no one would have expected the Virginia native, who graduated with a psychology degree and went on to work in the investment banking world, to later create a novel restaurant concept—the world's first oatmeal bar.

Delve a little deeper, and you'll realize that Sam has an untapped creative side with a passion for dance and art (she still does the chalkboard art at the store) and that nearly led her to become a Pilates instructor! Now, as the proud owner of OatMeals in New York City's West Village and as Quaker's Creative Oatmeal Officer, she channels that creativity in coming up with unexpected and delicious ways to enjoy oatmeal.
