My name is Sam, I'm 24 years old and I have a B.A. in Psychology from UC Santa Barbara. 

I'm Cali born and raised, a photographer, dog mama, plant lover, wellness aficionado and soon-to-be world traveler!

I'm so glad I get to share what I learn each day, and to connect with you through my 
articles and stories.

I've always been passionate about maintaining the happiest, healthiest, most positive lifestyle that I can, and I've made it my mission to help others do the same!


I created Why She Glows to serve as a source of positivity, to share what makes me happy, and to empower others along the way.  

I'm thrilled to have you here and want to thank you so much for joining this journey!

This is only the beginning...

Let's see what we have in common! 


Biggest Obsessions: Definitely flowers and sea otters - always have been, always will be! And of course, my sweet boyfriend, Daniel!

Favorite food: Sashimi... strange I know.

Go-to bar drink: Either a crisp white wine or a gin & tonic, depending on my mood!

Favorite dessert:
There's nothing like a perfect chocolate chip cookie...

Go-to pizza toppings: Mushrooms, bacon and pineapple are necessities for me, contrary to popular opinion...

Secret Talent: I'm weirdly good at quoting movies. But if you're my friend, it's definitely no secret!

Favorite shows to binge:
I will never get sick of Friends, Parks & Recreation and The Office.

Guilty pleasures: Singing Mamma Mia soundtracks and watching The Bachelor with my ladies!

Go-To Outfit: Blue jeans and a tucked in white tee, but dresses are my all time favorite!

Bucket list destinations: Australia, Greece, Indonesia and Thailand - in that order!
