Samantha Narciso

Program Associate

Samantha Narciso (pronounced NAR-sis-OH) is a program associate with the Education and Marketing Departments at the Davis Phinney Foundation. After her dad was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s when she was six and he was thirty-three, Samantha has spent the majority of her life fighting for Parkinson’s advocacy and research which has led her to work for the foundation. When she’s not hard at work, Samantha enjoys all things media; whether it’s the latest Marvel movie or a cult documentary, if you’ve watched it, so has Samantha. She also loves traveling, theme parks, and her cat, Kathy Bates. Her life motto is “We’re here for a good time, not a long time”, and she loves how the Davis Phinney Foundation works with Parkinson’s patients and their families to make sure we all have a good time no matter how long we have.
