Welcome to KCAA's new Junior Co-Chair!

KCAA is happy to introduce our newly-elected Junior Co-Chair, Samantha Bradbeer.

Samantha Bradbeer is the historian for the Hallmark Archives. Her love for history began when her father introduced her to the comical Indiana Jones films. At the age of 9, she knew that she wanted to be an archivist and explorer. Luckily, she grew up in a military family. Her childhood experiences - traveling the world and meeting new people from different cultures - allowed her to realize her passion for all things historical much sooner in life.

Samantha is a certified archivist and has degrees in anthropology and museum studies. In her spare time, she enjoys antiquing, going to the movies, reading and practicing yoga.
