Business Operations Manager
Samantha is the Business Operations Manager for 11th Hour Racing. Prior to joining the team, Samantha worked for many years in sales, event planning, and then most recently in the nonprofit world with a focus on education, healthcare, and under-resourced communities. Her experience there deeply shaped her career and elevated her interest in community development that is people-centered, equitable, and sustainable. Samantha is thrilled to combine all of her skills and interests in her new position at 11th Hour Racing.
With her lifelong love for the water, she was drawn to Newport over 10 years ago. Since that time, she has developed a deep curiosity and interest in learning how we can collectively impact the environment in a positive way as well as many other aspects of planetary health and human wellbeing. Samantha has a strong passion to continually learn from different perspectives, take risks and try new things. And most importantly, make a positive impact on people’s lives.
