I support individuals in their personal growth to be the best version of themselves while cultivating environments that nurture others and navigating coercive systems. I've provided education at national conferences, regional convening, secondary classrooms, universities, and at an organization's request.
I embody the legacy of the griot. I am a storyteller, sing my praises, and am dedicated to oral tradition. I honor relationships, recognize one's social location, and acknowledge this work must be intersectional.
Samantha embodies what it means to be an intersectional leader and teacher
in our community.
Enjoyable, enthusiastic, and thought-provoking in roughly equal amounts.
Samantha is intelligent and driven in her quest for justice
and the empowerment of others.
