Probation Officer, Kent County Veterans Treatment Court
Samantha Rose is a 2018 Graduate from Grand Valley State University, where she earned her Masters Degree in Social Work. Samantha served in the U.S. Army, prior to attending college. Her less-than-smooth transition from service to higher education is what fostered her passion for providing social work services for other veterans. Samantha has been an active and integral part of her local veteran community, both on and off campus. She most recently served as President of the GVSU Chapter of Student Veterans of America. Samantha was selected both in 2016 and 2017 to attend the SVA National Leadership Conference. She is also an active American Legion member at Post 179, Walker, MI, as well as being an Auxilary member at Post 459, Grand Rapids, MI. She is a recent addition to the Kent County Veterans Treatment Court team, serving as a probation officer. Samantha has an eight year old daughter, and they both love to travel, hike, and kayak.
