This fund is to help promote and support her two much loved beautiful children, Austin (8) and Thea (6), with their future education.

Austin loves to read, play soccer, and run. Thea loves to dance, perform, and draw.

Samantha was an inspirational women, wife to Hayden, mother, Doctor of Psychology, University Lecturer, and a true heroine.

Education has been a major part of Samantha's life. Since school she continued and achieved her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Otago. She had her own private practice as a Clinical Psychologist in Dunedin. She was a Professional Practice Fellow in the Department of Psychological Medicine at University of Otago. Also a tutor of early learning Medicine. Recently she was Chairperson of Otago/Southland NZ College of Clinical Psychologists. Her community involvement extended to President of Arthur Burns Pre-school Mosgiel & President of Friends of Fairfield School.

She was loved and respected by so many people and will be a massive loss.

Her legacy lives on in the knowledge that after her tragic death, she donated her organs, to help others to have hope for life and wellbeing.

Austin and Thea would love your support in their future education.
