"Samantha is a perfect mix of data driven marketing and storytelling. Having spent time with her on Millennial Think Tank, I can speak to her depth of knowledge and insight. Any company would be supremely lucky to have her -- and her wonderful compassion for helping the world become a better place "
Product Manager, sillicon Valley
I build communities one word at a time. I passionately listen, analyze, and connect people across mediums.
I create stories out of statistics, highlighting the real, human elements in data that's driving today's changes.
"Samantha is a modern poet warrior. I’ve had the pleasure of sharing many spaces with Samantha in the time we’ve known one another. She’s a fellow community organizer and a friend, an exceptionally talented communicator and a dedicated social justice advocate. She has the rare twin gifts of diligence and eloquence: if Samantha has something to share, you can be sure that it’s well-researched, well-thought out and genuine, and you’re certainly going to understand exactly what she means to say. I trust the work that Samantha puts out into the world whole-heartedly, and warmly look forward to working with her again"

Hi! My name is
I breathe communications and community engagement.
I spend my days as the Community Engagement & Government Relations Manager for Mad Hatter Technology Inc., handling everything social media strategy to government-Tech Town partnerships.
I spend my nights participating in Poetry Slams. As a published poet, I have performed in Edmonton, Victoria, Kitchener-Waterloo, Windsor, and Chatham. Most recently, I was a feature poet for Edmonton’s “Poetry in the Square” during the Edmonton Poetry Festival 2015.
I love words, spoken or written, and the power of communication. Ultimately, I am just a small person trying to make big change.
