• About Samantha Jayneen
  • Hi, I’m Samantha Jayneen!

    As you know, a lifestyle blog encompasses well just that “your lifestyle”. So what you’ll see here are all things that I prioritize in my life: travel, mindfulness, personal growth, fitness, and the advice and motivation to accomplish whatever the SJ reader hopes to!

    I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hi., then moved to Portland, Or., when I was fifteen to further my competitive skating career. Oh yeah, there’s that…I grew up in Hawaii, but was a competitive ice skater. Pretty backwards huh? I competed all throughout high school, and then left to attend Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Wa. where I earned a major in Communications and minor in Fashion Merchandising in Apparel Design. While attending college I transferred from competitive skating to coaching.

    After graduation, I went to New Zealand, where I interned for several months at Lily and Louis Public Relations. This was my first big trip out of the country by myself. During my time there, I managed social media campaigns for several different companies, wrote press releases for a multitude of different companies, and marketed high profile events through brand ambassadors and media. 

    Currently, I’m back in Portland, Or., teaching and training for my next adventure, performing as a principal skater on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Sea’s ship. This adventure sets sail in November for six months, traveling through the Caribbean and Mediterranean.


    I’m a planner, but I somehow live my life on the edge – constantly pushing my limits. I love planners, lists, and throwing them all away to take on spontaneous adventures.

    Late mornings are my favorite because breakfast and coffee is a big event for me.

    Fitness plays a big part of my life, makes me feel productive and motivated for the day thats ahead.

    I’m a bit scatter brained, yet I have a tendency to hyper-focus on specific things, sometimes to a fault.

    I love to inspire others, and I wear my heart on my sleeve.

    I’m in for the adventures that this world has and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.

    Tune in here for all things Samantha Jayneen.
