Sam is a professional, multi-faceted artist, currently based in Toronto, Ontario. She has studied at Second City Toronto, Steps On Broadway, and Broadway Dance Centre, as well as Randolph College, where she graduated as an honours student and the recipient of the coveted “Triple Threat Graduate Award” for outstanding, multi-dimensional talent. Since graduating, she has been busy consistently working locally and internationally, as a musical theatre performer and film actress. She continues her training at Metro Movement, Lewis Baumander Acting Studio, and Louisa Burgess-Colbert Voice Studios, and is always looking for new opportunities to grow!
When Sam isn't busting a move, dropping into character, or belting her heart out, you can find her outside enjoying nature --Her 'Happy Place' is being on the dock at her cottage feeling the wind dancing through her hair and hearing the waves gently lapping on the shore. She loves spending her free time painting, writing, DIY'ing and snuggling her cat, Mia, and dog, Indy (yes, he's named after her first ever crush... Indiana Jones!). Sam will go on record saying that, "She will NEVER turn down chicken wings." While those who know Sam are eager to say that her playful zest for life, inspiring drive, and infectious personality make her a joy to be around!
Some of her biggest role models are Lucille Ball, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kate Rockwell. One of her all-time favourite quotations is as follows:
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present."
