She joined Ballet Theatre of Maryland in 2012 as an apprentice. Since joining the company, Samantha has performed roles such as the Goblin Queen from The Dancing Princesses, Arabian and the Dew Drop Fairy from The Nutcracker, Lady Capulet in Romeo and Juliet, and original works set to music composed by her husband, Ryan Lucas.
