From a background as a corporate lawyer, Samantha is now an endurance athlete, keynote presenter, author and social entrepreneur. Her thirst for adventure, experience and thrill for life has allowed her to discover what she cares about the most – achieving social change through the vehicle of adventure and running. Samantha has run through some of the most extreme and inhospitable locations on the planet. She has run 379kms non stop across the Simpson Desert for a domestic program with Save the Children. Her most recent adventure had her running 1968kms across South Africa in 32 days, examining access and the connection between feminine hygiene products and education.
In August 2016, Samantha is running close to 4000kms across India to explore the barriers to quality education.
