Samantha Morse, PhD

Samantha Morse, PhD was an English professor before turning to freelance writing while she traveled the U.S. full time in a self-converted Ford Transit van. Ultimately, she settled on a small homestead with her husband in Bend, Oregon.

Her studies in English taught her the power of stories told by others, while her work with plant medicines taught her the power of stories we tell ourselves. Samantha has explored expanded states of consciousness through meditation, breathwork, and plants for over ten years. After graduating from Third Wave’s Coaching Certification Program, she built her transformational coaching practice around preparation, integration, and microdosing coaching.
