Samantha Barnholtz

Samantha, or best known as Sam, is the Senior Journey Manager, serving intended parents and gestational surrogates for over 4 years. Sam oversees all Case Managers, coordinates insurance for all cases, and ensures all journeys at ISC run smoothly. 

Samantha was born and raised in Murrieta, CA, and recently moved to Tennessee in 2020 to also help support surrogates in the Midwest and Southern regions of the United States. Sam has been married for over 11 years, has two beautiful daughters, ages 14 and 9, and has been a two-time gestational surrogate for intended parents from Taiwan. Sam enjoys gardening, loves animals, having a dog, two cats, two rabbits, and a pet rat, and when she’s not watching her kids compete in their favorite sports, she is outdoors enjoying the beauty of nature and feeding all the wild deer on her land during her downtown.

Being a parent to my own children and a surrogate for others are the most gratifying accomplishments of my life and I want to do everything I can for those who, without surrogacy, would be unable to achieve the same rewarding feeling.
