Biography

Samantha has been teaching at the post-secondary level since 2001. Samantha has been at UFV full-time since 2007, teaching a variety of Communications courses at all levels. Prior to coming to UFV, Samantha taught in Alberta for two years in the University of Lethbridge's writing program, for Lethbridge College, and for Athabasca University. Returning to her home province, she taught at BCIT for three years before making the switch to UFV. 

In her spare time, Samantha likes to get to the outdoors with her family - every year she goes camping with her horses and dogs as often as possible.
