When it comes to paranormal investigating, Samantha believes it's just part of her genetic makeup. Her earliest memories of the field include listening in at just four years old while her father and Co-Founder of TAPS, Jason Hawes, planned his weekend trips. While she has been investigating with her father for the last 10 years, she says that one of her most memorable experiences would be leading Blue Oyster Cult through an investigation at the Belleview-Biltmore in Belleaire, FL. Having had numerous paranormal experiences she can still say the one that sticks with her the most involves an entity that mimicked her father after he had been investigating in a location the night prior to her investigation. He was nowhere near the location of Samantha's investigation when it took place and was actually sick in bed.
Samantha is currently a student at The University of Rhode Island and holds a Bachelor's Degree in History. She will obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education as well as a middle school endorsement in May 2014
