Samantha Finglass choose her own career path instead of following the footsteps of her mother, Kelli

Samantha Finglass, 27, was born on June 6, 1997, and grew up with her influential parents, Kelli and Joel Finglass.

As both of her parents worked for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, many thought Samantha would join the DCC team as well. But to everyone’s surprise, she chose her career path in marketing.

Samantha studied Journalism and Media Studies at Texas A&M University and Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership at the University of Washington.

In 2019, she got an internship as a social media producer for Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team, a CMT Television show.

According to the Texas A&M student spotlight, Samantha said, “Working in social media content marketing was a really positive experience for me.”

Furthermore, she was the Student Ambassador at Texas A&M for a year. Later, in 2021, she became an Administrative Associate, Assistant Director, and eventually Director of Letterman’s Association at Texas A&M University.

Per her LinkedIn profile, Samantha Finglass is currently a Director of Brand Development and Retail Marketing at Rebel Athletics.

Although Samantha did not share the same passion as her mother, Kelli, she once revealed that she enjoyed dancing. But dancing did not become her ultimate ambition.

Regardless, Kelli Finglass’s daughter, Samantha Finglass, looks happier than ever. Kelli also supports and respects her daughter’s decision not to pursue a cheerleading career.
