Personal History

Samantha is the Campus Minister for Community Outreach and is a 2-time UD alumna. Her undergrad was in Religious Studies with Human Rights and Social Work and her Master's degree was in Theology with a certificate in Nonprofit and Community Leadership. In between schooling, she has lived in Boston and St. Louis. She started working full time at UD in August 2016 and is excited to be back!  She lives in the St. Anne's Hill neighborhood and is really passionate about the city of Dayton and the many great places and people that make this city great. She has been married since 2012 to her husband, Tyler.  

While she isn't working, she can be found hiking, biking, playing board games, reading, visiting family or friends, and watching some of her favorite TV shows. She also loves to travel and has been to India, El Salvador, Mexico, and Italy (mostly through programs at UD).

Stop in and see her or shoot her an email to meet over a cup of coffee on or off campus (Ghostlight is her favorite coffee shop in Dayton)!
