Most would remember Samantha’s time on the GDS stage, starting in middle school and growing in upper school to involvement in virtually every production as a lead character. That passion and love continued after graduation and included several musical productions at the Winston Salem Little Theatre including Peter Pan (role of Wendy), and Chorus Line (role of Judy.) It also included a small yet powerful production of Quilters at SECA. While not on the stage as of late, Samantha has pursued a career in Medicine at Wake Forest and has been a practicing PA in Internal Medicine, Section on Gerontology for the past 9 years. In that role she provides primary care for patients with all geriatric syndromes and has a very integral role in the Alzheimer’s Research Center. She has developed an expertise in the care of patients with dementia of all types and severity. In her spare time, she has led PAs at the state level, holding various leadership positions on the North Carolina Academy of PAs Board of Directors for the past 7 years including a recent 3 year Presidential term. Advocacy for the PA profession and patients is very important to her and has been a tremendous outlet for leadership growth and influence. When not engaged in professional ventures, Samantha loves working on her Triathlete goals and quest for the Half Ironman!
