Samantha originally hails from southern Arizona, but has called many places home over the years, including Tacoma, Washington, St. Helena, California, and most recently Chicago, Illinois. She has arrived in Ithaca with her partner, Mack, to lay down roots close to his family. She brings with her 15 years of management and customer service experience, with a passion for developing strong relationships with clients and team members alike. Most recently a bank teller and before that a manager for Nordstrom, Samantha is at ease assisting individuals of all backgrounds and ages with their most pressing needs.
When not helping people in the work place, Samantha has a flair for adventure. She loves to travel and see the world, spending as much time as possible in the great outdoors hiking and camping. When she’s not able to be outdoors or on the road, her nose is likely in a book. Or she might be found in the kitchen experimenting on some new, strange recipe she discovered online or in some odd collection. Mostly, though she is eager and fearless to try new things and take on new challenges.
