Samantha grew up around the Orange County, CA area throughout her childhood years, where her parents put both her sister and her in all sorts of sports from swimming, soccer, basketball, softball and tennis. Right before high school started, she moved to Las Vegas, NV with her mom and sister where she picked up track and cross country.
After graduating she joined the Navy and was on board the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) where she was deployed for 10 months but had the honor to help our FitBoss. When she saw Ms. Page work, she was all over the ship setting up fitness classes for everyone, training others to pass their physical tests and setting obstacle courses on the hanger bay to help bring teamwork and camaraderie throughout the ship. This is sparked my interest in Kinesiology.
Since the Navy she graduated from Fullerton College and will graduate from Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelors in Kinesiology and a Concentration in Gerokinesiology this May. During Sam’s time at Cal State, after completing her internship with the UCI WorkStrong program Sam was hired as a group fitness instructor at the student recreational center and a personal trainer for the rehabilitation program with WorkStrong.
On her weekends she enjoys going on hikes, running, going to the movies and spending time with her grandparents, mom and sister.
