Samantha Schmidt

What did you dream you would be when you grew up? A teacher (which I was).

Is there any one book, person, place or thing that has influenced you the most? I was most influenced by my time living on a Native American Reservation. It changed the way I seek peace in the world. By living simply and giving generously.

What excites you about the agency business & marketing? The most exciting thing about being “agency side” is seeing the inside of so many businesses. Each is unique. Each has different goals. Each pushes me to use all my knowledge and skills to make an impact to drive results. For as long as I’m in this industry, I will always be learning.

Where did you grow up? I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH.

Do you have any passion projects outside of Orchard? I love creating handmade gifts (cards, candles, calligraphy signs, memory quilts, etc.)

Describe your family (husband, dog, cat & bird….) I have two rescue dogs, Lucky & Bailey.
