Samantha started her career in funeral service seven years ago, serving families during the initial removal from the place of death. She soon discovered her passion for funeral service and obtained her Funeral Director/Embalmer license. She received her degree in funeral service from Mt. Hood Community College in 2008.

Samantha began her career at Hillside Chapel in 2007, working for Randy and Jennie Thommen who introduced her to Clackamas County Senior Citizens Council.

In 2012 she graduated with a Bachelors in Business Management from Marylhurst University and moved to Young’s Funeral home in Tigard where she continues to work as a funeral director.

In her spare time, Samantha loves hanging out with her beagle Frank and volunteering in the Oregon City Community.
