Samantha is an award-winning former news journalist, mother, and soon-to-be wife. After working as a reporter for 12 years, she stepped out of the newsroom in 2015 and launched a couple of local businesses and organizations from the ground up. A southern belle through and through she has lived all over the Southeast but has called Sarasota home for six years. Samantha is a local philanthropist who spends much of her time highlighting and shining a light on the growing minority and women-owned businesses in the region; lending a hand to those women who need it most. She and her son Jaden have grown up together through the years-- from a 20-year-old young mother and newborn, to a seasoned, confident local leader and budding student-athlete. In addition to her philanthropy, Samantha is most passionate about health and wellness, after a private battle with postpartum depression all while finishing up her first bachelor's degree, and education.
