At age 10, Samantha began her dance training with Christopher and Francoise Doyle at Severance Conservatory. At 13, she continued her training under the direction of Jasmin Kloos, Margaret Hord, Jimmy Hao, and Carla Stallings-Lippert. She also studied modern with Cristal Tiscareno, and flamenco with Eva Gosselin. After High School, Samantha moved to Jackson, MS to join Ballet Magnificat's! Trainee Program where she spent two years under the instruction of Jiri and Cassandra Voborsky, Nissa Kilman, and Jennifer Collado. During her time there, the Lord grew and matured her to use dance as worship.

Samantha joined Paradosi as an Apprentice in 2012 and was promoted to Company Member for the 2013/2014 Season. Samantha is excited to see how the Lord is going to use her as she continues to follow the calling that He has place on her life.
