Samantha Toth, ABOC
Marketing Rockstar (President)
Samantha grew up in an optical practice with multiple family members in the industry. An ABO certified optician herself, Samantha worked as a dispensing optician for eight years, as well as managed an independent optometric practice. During this time, she realized there were very few people, or marketing firms, that understood the unique marketing needs of the optical industry.
With a strong passion for marketing and design, Samantha pursued and completed her bachelor’s degree at Michigan State University. In 2003, she started Innereactive Media, a full service marketing company that specializes in the optical industry. Her experience as a certified optician, along with her formal marketing education has given her a unique perspective on marketing, design, and website solutions for the optical industry.
Samantha is an ABO, NCLE, AOA, JCAHPO, and COPE approved speaker and she lectures across the country teaching optometrists and opticians best practices for marketing their practices. Her niche expertise led her to be named one of the “Most Influential Women in Optical,” and her company was named one of Michigan’s Top 50 Companies to Watch in 2016. She and her team work with frame and lens manufacturers, laboratories, and eye care practices all across the country.
In between flights and lectures, Samantha always finds time to indulge in her intense love for sports on the nearest screen. When at her home, she loves to ride her motorcycle in the summer, and hike the trails with her best pal Zoe, her black lab.
