1 Step 1

After growing up and attending school in the midwest, Samantha flew south for the winter to Austin, TX. She landed her dream job of serving with middle schoolers at a parish and, nearly six years later, she has not looked back. Her educational background includes undergraduate and graduate degrees in Catechetics (concentration in Youth Ministry) and Theology (concentration in Apologetics) with a side/minor of Mental Health and Human Services. She enjoys deep dish pizza, volleyball, laying on soft grass in 70-degree weather, and the smell of unfinished basements.
