Since she was a child, Samantha has been interested in the veterinary medical field. She was the neighborhood animal sitter, and cared for everything from dogs and cats to reptiles and parrots! Samantha always knew a career in animal care was the choice for her.
Born on Long Island, New York, Samantha found her way to Ark Animal Hospital after a client of the clinic recommended it to her for shadowing purposes. As Samantha learned more and more, she was officially hired. She’s currently a full-time student at Montgomery County Community College, and plans to attend Temple University in the future to study biology!
Working in the lab is one of Samantha’s favorite parts of her job—using the microscope to view different types of bacteria and blood cells is fascinating to her. She also likes being able to learn something new every day in the dynamic clinic environment.
At home, Samantha has several pets of her own: Tank, a stubborn but loving English bulldog, Gorgo, a large Italian Mastiff, Rosie, a rescued boxer mix, and Hendrix the beta fish.
