Welcome our new Facilitator, Sam

"I enjoy long walks to the fridge and making terribly cheesy puns."

An avid dog-lover, Samantha is a freshman at Arizona State University, double-majoring in Investigative Journalism and Dance. The love of science has always played a key role in her life, but truly blossomed with her discovery of astrophysics. The mysteries of the universe have enthralled her ever since. She looks forward to working with you.
