Big-hearted. Hard-working. Family first. That’s how we would describe Sam Moravec. He’s living the dream as an over-the-road truck driver, visiting family as he crisscrosses the country. But the path to success wasn’t always easy. Growing up with autism, Sam struggled to feel accepted and “fit in.” It was often challenging to communicate or interact socially. But with the love and support of his family, Sam has achieved his goals.

Today, he’s helping others to understand their autistic loved ones and communicate more effectively. Listen in as Sam shares about his childhood, becoming a driver, and joining the Nussbaum team. We’ll also learn about his favorite hobby, visit a 100-year-old ice cream parlor, and meet a special man named Uncle Tony.
