Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Samantha joined the Artist Boat team in September 2018 as an Eco-Art Educator. Her passion for the ocean and marine wildlife led her to Texas A&M University Galveston where she obtained two Bachelor’s of Science degrees in Marine Biology and Marine Fisheries. She has worked as a youth educator and team leader for many years and has participated in several internships and volunteer events throughout the Houston and Galveston areas.
Samantha enjoys numerous outdoor activities including biking, kayaking, hiking and fishing. She is excited to share her experiences with others and learn from those around her. She hopes that her love for the ocean and it’s inhabitants will inspire others to take action in preserving the delicate ecosystems below the surface.
