Samantha has a degree in Public Communications from Buffalo State College and over five years of experience as a copywriter, social media strategist, and freelance marketing professional. A self-declared “Word Nerd,” she loves creative writing and any opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals.

Along with her role as a mother and wife, Samantha runs her own full-time work at home/freelance business, “Write on.” She credits much of her professional success to her supportive husband, well-behaved children, and countless episodes of Chuggington on Netflix.

In her spare time (ha), Samantha enjoys coffee, crafting, camping, blogging, and sipping only the finest of boxed wines – not necessarily in that order.
