She also is a member of ink, TCNJ’s creative writing club, and on the executive board of Alpha Psi Omega National Theatre Honor Society.

Some of her favorite texts include The Secret History by Donna Tartt, God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Sam is incredibly excited to begin her term as Student Advisor and looks forward to working with Tim and the rest of Student Leadership as they continue to develop and create opportunities and experiences for Sigma Tau Delta as a whole.
