Samantha’s house is never short of chaos with two energetic dogs and one mildly evil cat running amok. She’s a sucker for any animal, she has a hard time not adopting every animal she sees on a daily basis. Each pet in her family has been adopted or taken in, the most recent being “Rosie,” a mix breed who comes to work with Samantha often and may or may not judge you if you look at her wrongly (she will most definitely judge you).

Family is incredibly important to Samantha. A devoted daughter, sister and auntie, she spends as much time with her family as possible. Fun Fact: her sister was previously an employee at DVC a long time ago and likes to take credit for the fact that Samantha works there now.
