She is an avid trail runner and climber and escaped the fast-paced life in Washington DC to play in the Colorado mountains in 2018 (and pursue her Masters degree). When she isn’t frolicking, Samantha is working to complete her Masters in Public Health with a focus on population mental health and well-being.Prior to her graduate school work, she co-founded the Lane 9 Project, a non-profit advocating for active women in recovery from eating disorders and disordered eating, and worked in health policy. Samantha aspires to work with young women grappling with chronic illness and autoimmune disease and ultimately aims to combine her passion for the outdoors and women’s health by pursuing her guiding certifications to introduce this population of women to the empowerment and opportunity the outdoors provides.
