Josh Vickers

Samantha Deibel received her Bachelor of Science degree from the Pennsylvania State University in Forensic Science. After graduating, she worked as a Laboratory Technician II, gaining valuable hands-on experience with wet chemistry. She moved on to work as a QC Release Testing Analyst, where she attained useful skills in conducting cellular assays and eased a new assay into the lab while adhering to federal regulations. Sammi then decided to further her education and applied to Arcadia University to obtain her Master of Science in Forensic Science, which will be completed in Spring 2023. While attending Arcadia University, she is one of two student representatives for the cohort and works as an assistant lab manager for her graduate assistantship. In early June 2022, her microscopic research of hair growth rates began. Sammi’s goal is to work in a crime lab at any level where she can help make a positive impact on the community.
