While working for Virgin Australia, she received the prestigious offer to be an exclusive executive assistant for Sir Richard at his home on the ultra-private Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands.

Her international portfolio led directly to her more recent, six years, role as Corporate Director of VIP Guest Services for Seminole Gaming, based in South Flordia, USA.
An energetic, driven and passionate professional, Samantha’s mantra is to say “yes” as often as possible in order to generate positivity, step outside of her comfort zone and make life that much more exciting.
