About

Nice to meet you!

My name is Samantha and I am a social media professional. With more than eight years experience—I’ve been in the social world since the beginning.

Starting in politics, I learned the value of hard work through 100-hour work weeks and collaborative, lightening-fast teams. Graduating from Western Washington University with a double major in Political Science and Spanish, my initial goal was to save the world—humble right?

Fast-forward and now I’m working to change the world in a new way.  Through my social media leadership, I’m helping to transform the way businesses help customers, engage employees and speak with the public—a big deal in its own right!

For the past four years, I led social media at Portland General Electric, a publicly traded electric utility in Portland, Oregon. During my tenure, I led the initiative to turn social media from a one-off curiosity to a core communications tool. See my full experience.

Recently relocated to Los Angeles, I’m looking to continue work in the social media revolution. By working with companies that understand the value of social media, I aim to be a part of creative team that is constantly testing, collaborating, analyzing and improving.

Facebook isn’t going anywhere—businesses need concrete, creative strategies to ensure they get the most from their followers, likes and shares. This is where I come in.
