Samantha joined the staff of Gateway in June 2017. She and her husband, Mat, have been attending Gateway since 2013. Prior to her time at Gateway, Samantha taught elementary students in various places including Thornton, CO and Defiance, OH. She also served as a missionary for 6 months in South Africa where she taught third graders at Bethesda Outreach Ministries. Most recently, she served as the Data Entry Coordinator for a NW Ohio nonprofit, The RIDGE Project, which works with incarcerated fathers and their families.
Although Samantha has lived many places throughout her life, her husband, Mat, and she have lived in Findlay since 2013. They have two beautiful children, two dogs and 1 cat. Samantha enjoys working both with the Youth and Communications teams at Gateway and is looking forward to youth life groups this fall where she will co-lead the Class of 2024 girls. When Samantha is not working at Gateway, you can find her chasing her kiddos around, drinking her favorite coffee drink, or watching her home state’s football team, the Iowa Hawkeyes.
