Sam Gerritz grew up in a small town in southern Ohio, where he enjoyed walking and biking everywhere he could. After majoring in chemistry at the College of Wooster (OH), Sam moved to Cambridge MA and obtained his PhD in chemistry from MIT, then spent 8 years in Durham, NC. Sam and his family moved to Guilford in 2001. Sam has worked as a medicinal chemist at pharma and biotech companies his entire career; his wife Sarah is a family medicine physician. Given his strong interest in cycling and his cycling commutes to Wallingford and (now) New Haven, there are very few roads in New Haven County that Sam hasn’t explored. Sam was involved with the SGT in the early days, and enjoyed many exploratory walks around Branford, Guilford, and Madison with Larry Dowler. Work demands prompted Sam to take a break from volunteer work, but in 2019 he was appointed the chair of the Guilford Safe Streets Task Force.
