Samantha is from New York and grew up on Long Island, though few can tell as she has narrowly escaped acquiring the stereotypical accent. Before she became an Event Expert at SeatGeek, Samantha did sales for a global communications company and also studied at Colgate University for International Relations and Film and Media Studies. Outside of the office she can be found (or lost) behind her books, tango dancing, or improving her downward-facing dog... sometimes all at the same time.
