Samantha McKeon is NCACPA’s very own executive assistant, ensuring the “i’s” are dotted, “t’s” are crossed, and the trains are running on time, so to speak. Samantha joined NCACPA after 14 years in hospitality and business management, where she most recently focused on elevating airport dining and shopping across the country. She graduated with a BSBA in hospitality and business, and an area of focus in food and beverage from the University of Denver (Go Pios!). When she’s not at work, you can find Samantha eating her way through every city, exploring the outdoors, and travelling across the globe to experience as many different cultures as possible.
Fun facts about Samantha:
- Samantha is a certified Level One Court of Master Sommelier. She loves her some wine!
- Asking her, “Where are you from?” is the hardest question she can answer because she has dual citizenship to the United States and Brazil, but she grew up overseas in Africa (South Africa, Mozambique, Egypt).
- Her biggest fear is frogs. Story for a different day, but she is deathly afraid of them!
