Samantha became interested in pediatrics at the age of 16 while teaching swimming lessons to children. She specialized in pediatrics after graduating from Misericordia University with a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy,
working with children and young adults from birth to age 21. In 2014 she completed her teaching certification in Infant Massage through the Liddle KidzTM Foundation.
Massage is an ancient art passed down through the generations, and in many cultures it is performed as part of regular parenting practices. Benefits for babies include improved sleep, digestion, sensory awareness, and deeper bonding with parents or caregivers.
