Sam is an editor and writer from the New England area. She's been pursuing a career in the editorial field for over seven years, and has learned a wealth of insight and information during this time. Her previous work as a features journalist for 1883 Magazine was instrumental in teaching Sam the intricacies of the writing process, and she has used this acquired knowledge to continuously grow and develop. She has contributed writing to several publications, including Medium, and continues to write poetry and prose in her spare time. As a full-time editor at The List, Sam places an emphasis on kindness and understanding above all else, and enjoys working alongside such a dedicated and talented team.


In place of formal education, Sam mastered her craft by studying at the Joan Didion school of precision, the Donna Tartt institute of detailed creativity, and the Nora Ephron university of wit and wisdom. She has learned how to become more honest in her writing from Ashley C. Ford, how to view life more lyrically from Orion Carloto, and how to be fearless from Eve Babitz.
