Meet the Team


Samantha (#1)

Hey! My name is Sam. I'm the creator and owner of this little slice of the internet.

Outside of HP, I have (most of) a Culinary Arts degree. I do some food blogging as a side gig, and if you're into food I'll talk your ear off about food science and all things cooking. I have a huge cookbook collection, and I also like to read novels (mostly YA or mystery).

I live in Omaha, Nebraska with my husband, Joel! At home, I am curating my own mini-zoo. I have two cats (Mr. Doo and Noodle) and one dog (Sully). I've been riding since I was a kid, mainly hunter/jumper. I own an OTTB named Pilot.
