The first time Samantha saw the big city was three weeks ago at the JFK airport, with all of her belongings in a suitcase beside her. She moved here from sunny Florida where she has lived all her life. She graduated from the University of Florida, in Gainesville where she experienced her coldest winter to date—an average around 55 degrees. There she studied advertising and fell in love with Gator football. (attending during the “Tebow Era” and once meeting him in Chic-fil-A!) After graduation Samantha decided to make the move to NYC to pursue her career in the ad industry. She mostly misses her family, but beaches and Tijuana Flats are high on the list as well. Her career interests lie in event branding and strategy, but when she's not working, she loves to travel, try new foods, enjoy live music and explore New York City!
