Samantha, originally hailing from the picturesque locale of Pasadena, California, embarked on a transformative journey northward when she pursued her collegiate endeavors in the vibrant city of San Francisco. Her five-year sojourn in the Bay Area was punctuated by cherished visits to her beloved family and friends nestled in the serene embrace of Southern Humboldt County.
In a pivotal decision that would come to define her life's path, Samantha, at the young age of 22, resolved to make the momentous leap to Humboldt in 2001. Her motivations were twofold: to nurture her child amidst the tranquility of rural living and to wholeheartedly immerse herself in the rustic allure of Southern Humboldt's hamlets. For this country girl at heart, the transition from the bustling urban landscape to the idyllic tranquility of Southern Humboldt was a wholly organic and eagerly embraced metamorphosis.
Samantha's profound affinity for the healing arts found expression in her initial foray into Reiki energy work, culminating in her attainment of the distinguished title of a certified Reiki Master during her sojourn in Oakland, California. Her ardor for holistic well-being led her to the esteemed halls of the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley. Upon her relocation to Humboldt, she furthered her journey of enlightenment in the realm of holistic massage therapy at the world-renowned Heartwood Institute, complemented by spa treatment certifications earned at the venerable Arcata School of Massage.
Driven by an enduring passion for the confluence of hospitality and healing, Samantha embarked on a fulfilling chapter in her professional odyssey as a massage therapist at the venerable Benbow Historic Inn, nestled just outside Garberville. Over the span of several enriching years, she not only practiced her therapeutic craft but also lent her expertise to concierge and guest services, notably during the comprehensive renovations that commenced in 2016.
Samantha's magnetic attraction to captivating locales led her to serve as the Assistant Estate Manager at the historic Julia Morgan's Redwood Grove, an exquisite estate nestled in the scenic landscapes of Southern Humboldt.
Drawing upon her extensive expertise in the realms of the healing arts and hospitality, Samantha channeled her passion into the creation of a remarkable venture - My Humboldt Abode: Bed and Breakfast Spa Retreat in Redway. Her establishment has garnered widespread acclaim and effusive praise from discerning guests hailing from every corner of the globe.
