Samantha graduated from the University of Calgary in December 2014 with a BSc in Geology with a focus on hydrogeology related courses. In the last summer of her undergraduate degree she gained invaluable experience working as a Hydrology Research Assistant at the University of Calgary. During this time Samantha also completed an Undergraduate Student Research Project through an NSERC scholarship that involved a comprehensive hydrogeological study of the Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park in Cochrane, AB.
She also implemented a long-term hydrological monitoring program in the park that is still operational today. Samantha began her MSc at Simon Fraser University in January 2016 under the supervision of Dr. Diana Allen in the Groundwater Resources Research Group (GRRG) in the Earth Sciences Department. She is excited about pursuing her MSc degree in such an interesting and dynamic field of study and looks forward to the knowledge and experience she will gain. Outside of academics, Samantha is an avid soccer fan and player, and have been playing high-level competitive soccer her whole life.
