Samantha is a proud born-and-raised San Diegan. She studied journalism at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo before she began her career in the media world, bringing over five years of copy editing and writing experience to Siege.

Outside of work, Samantha can usually be found baking treats, working out, tending to her garden, sipping on a hard kombucha, researching her next travel destination, or enjoying the Southern California sunshine with her dog Lucy.

And these are a few of her favorite things.
