Samantha has been surrounded by pest management her entire life. Her father and her aunt both owned successful pest management companies of their own and despite Samantha's best efforts to "never do what her dad did", she has absolutely fallen in love with the industry. When her college dreams of becoming a classically trained clarinetist didn't work out, she threw herself into pest management wholeheartedly. With the support of her family, husband, and countless industry contacts, Samantha has been able to embrace and grow in her career. She has recently accepted a promotion to the Executive Director for the Washington State Pest Management Association and looks to continue to promote the industry through education. Although her free time is sparse, she does enjoy cooking, cleaning, and planning gatherings for her family.
