Sam is a first-generation Vermonter and spent most of her youth growing up in the town of Gaysville. She attended The Sharon Academy and continued her education in Wisconsin at Beloit College, where she studied Spanish, Theatre Performance, and so much more. During her junior year she studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile, where she played “Yocasta” in a parody of “Oedipus the King.” She currently works at a tech company in Massachusetts where she gets to help Spanish speakers solve problems and help their businesses grow every day! Her artistic passions include writing poetry, acting, directing, dancing, singing, sketch comedy, improv, radio DJing and beatboxing, to name a few. Sam has been an avid fan of GIA since 2010, when she herself was a student. This is her second year as an RA, and she couldn't be more pumped!
