Samantha is a high school counselor that has worked in both public and charter schools. Her most recent role had a heavy emphasis on college and career readiness and planning, where she served as the 11-12th grade School Counselor and School-to-Career Coordinator in a public charter school on the Jersey Shore. Samantha finds being there every step of the college planning journey to be the most exciting part of her job. Working with students to find their best fit and watching them find their voice throughout their applications is truly rewarding for her. Samantha has worked to help students get into their dream schools, such Penn State, NYU, and Howard.
Samantha received her Bachelors in Psychology from Kean University and her Masters in Education from Monmouth University, where she was a graduate research assistant and was able to become a published academic author in both college textbooks and educational articles. Samantha loves spending time with her toddler, practicing self care via eating sweets and going to the gym (she’s all about balance!).
