A Montana native, Samantha has always loved to sing. From a young age, Samantha sang solos at church, and was a regular national anthem singer at the local baseball field. It wasn’t until a chance trip to Portland to hear a Ravel one act at Performed by Portland Opera, that changed Samantha’s life forever. After falling in love with opera, Samantha applied to Portland State University where she received her bachelors degree in vocal performance with an emphasis in opera in 2015. Combining her background in theatre and her passion for singing, Samantha has had roles such as an evil step sister in Into the Woods, Miss Tinkham in Suds in Your Eye, and the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland, Samantha is honored to be a part of Light Opera of Portland.  Samantha is a student of Pamela South.
