Growing up, I spent every weekend watching both the Disney and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s adaptations of “Cinderella.” These films and this character have always held a special place in my heart. Kindness, resilience, and empathy are at the core of this fairytale and through this work I aim to share these traits with children.
I have a BA in Theater Arts from Brandeis University and I’ve spent the last 5 years working with children in various settings. I am about to start my third year working in a special education classroom for children with emotional disabilities.
In addition to princessing and teaching, I’m in my second year of graduate school at Lesley University, where I’m working towards my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy. My graduate work has taught me the significance of play for children of all abilities and backgrounds, which lies at the center of my princessing.
I consider myself very lucky to be called a Jurassic Jo AND a princess. It’s been a dream job since I was a little girl. It’s important to remember that sometimes dreams can come true.
When I’m not wearing my princess gown, I’m a professional actress and I specialize in customer service and sales at a small family-operated business. I have pursued my training in the acting field for the past 18 years. I attended NYFA Burbank in 2013 for Acting in Film.
As Performance Advisor, I train new cast members to become comfortable and confident in their roles at parties, including- but not limited to- makeup and wardrobe, voice work and character development, and movement. I want to show kids that princesses are fun, clever, goofy, hungry, loud, dreamy, ambitious, caring, and whatever else they want to be! I’m thankful everyday for the opportunity I have to live as a royal role model.
My name is Samantha, and I’m often referred to as the team’s “Fairy Godmother”. While I’ll become a princess on occasion, you’re more likely to see me behind the scenes helping with event organization, finances, and upkeep of our magical wardrobe.
I’m a graduate from the University of Southern Maine with degrees in both psychology and business management, and currently work for Unum.
I remember what an impact my favorite princesses had on my childhood, and I’m thrilled to get the chance to bring that same joy to other kids in any way I can.
Marketing and Social Media Lead
Believe it or not, “dino wrangler” isn’t the weirdest job I’ve ever had. Though I also work as a children’s librarian, actor, and designer, I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last two decades employed in the worlds of entertainment and education, most notably as a character performer for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
With my BFA in Film and Television Production from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I’ve worked in many aspects of stage and film and have worked for the Savannah Film Festival, Atlanta's aTVfest, and Chanel-Paris.
I’m an ex officio member of the Board of Directors at Biddeford City Theater and as a former early childhood educator, I love blending my backgrounds in entertainment and education living my childhood dream of teaching people about dinosaurs (no really, ask me about the picture of little Carrow dressed as a paleontologist for Career Day)!
