Samantha Brown is known as an American television host, most famous for her work on Travel Channel shows such as Great Hotels and Green Getaways. She was born on March 31, 1970, in Dallas, Texas, to Christopher D. Brown, owner of the Conproco Corporation, and Elsie Mae Brown, an administrative assistant at Albright College. When Samantha was still a child, her family moved to New Hampshire, where she attended Pinkerton Academy in Derry. During her high school years, she was passionate about the performing arts and participated in music and drama. She continued this passion at Chapman University and later at Syracuse University, where she majored in musical theater and attained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. Additionally, she took twelve years of voice lessons to complement her theater skills. One week after receiving her degree, Samantha moved to New York City to pursue a career as a television actress.
Samantha Brown and her husband, Kevin James O'Leary, a specialist in computer servers and the manager of technology for Insight Enterprises, got married in 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay by Reverend David R. Henry. They are the proud parents of two beautiful twin children, Ellis James and Elizabeth Mae, born in 2013.
Before beginning her career as a travel hostess, Samantha had taken off by doing several jobs related to advertising. Initially, she worked as the spokesperson for Century Cable under the name "Wendy Wire," and as the Super Mom in the HP Pavilion commercial called "Computer is Personal Again." She also served as a spokesperson for brands such as ECCO Shoes, Cedar Point Amusement Park, and was a performer in the comedy sketch group "Mouth." She worked in these roles for ten years. In 1999, with the producers' recommendation, she auditioned for the show "Great Vacation Homes" on The Travel Channel. The show's concept was to introduce viewers to different vacation destinations and hotels across the United States and the rest of the world. Her dream job almost didn't happen due to problems with her flight connections, but fortunately, things worked out in the end.
