Until recently, Samantha was the Editorial Director of Nickelodeon’s Parents & Preschool Division, including ParentsConnect.com and NickJr.com. Prior to joining Nick, she spent over a decade in print media, starting as a fashion assistant at YM Magazine, where she toiled away in the fashion department performing such glam tasks as packing trunks for photo shoots and fetching coffee. That lead to writing and editing positions at glossy consumer titles Glamour, Us Weekly, Star and InStyle. From 2004-2008, she served as editor of Life & Style Weekly, helping the celebrity news and style weekly win 2004 Magazine Launch of the Year and become a respectable player in a highly competitive market. During her tenure there, newsstand sales reached an all-time high of 900,000/week.
Samantha earned her B.S. in Textiles and Apparel Management (yes, fashion!) at Cornell University. She currently resides in suburban New Jersey with her husband, 4-year-old son Henry and 2-year-old twin girls Stella and Poppy.
