Manager - Brand Experience and Training
Samantha believes strongly in adding value to the spaces and lives of those around her. Growing up on the East Coast, it was only fitting she got her hospitality sea legs in Newport, Rhode Island – learning from the utmost prestigious Relais & Chateau Properties, Luxury Event Venues, and Boutique Design Firms. Naturally, as her love for learning, teaching, and seeking inspiration from beautiful surroundings grew, she was drawn to venture out West to Colorado where she would learn to balance her strong career aspirations alongside fueling her highly adventurous spirit. Holding various roles spanning from recruiting to entrepreneurship to Corporate Hotel Operations at Life House, she’s made sure to prepare for a multi-passionate future while simultaneously enjoying every opportunity to explore the endless scenery around her. Her eventual landing at Collective Retreats was an inevitable harbor – a home where she is thrilled to cultivate experiences among peers who appreciate and celebrate the joys of life while creating memorable moments for others.
FAVORITE TRAVEL RITUAL:
On the last night of her travels, she always takes the time to escape and lay down outside during sunset or underneath the stars. It helps her spend those final moments grateful for all the memories and connections made.
