Port Discovery Children's Museum

Samantha brings to Port Discovery a Masters in Education and a Bachelors in Archeology and History. Samantha feels the most at home when she is surrounded by the friends and family she loves, like her husband, Jason and dog, Bandit. Her favorite moments from working at Port Discovery are when she sees children, who have not met before, become friends through play. When she was little, she wanted to work for National Geographic and explore the world. Samantha’s favorite children’s book is Moon Horse by Mary Pope Osborne.
