Born in California but raised in Colorado, Samantha began her education at Colorado State University and received her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Junior year of her undergrad she studied abroad and attended Auckland University of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. There, she partook in a spatial design internship opportunity that allowed her to live, study and work abroad for 6 months. This was her first airplane ride – go big or go home is the saying, right?
Upon her return, she had attained an interest in traveling. Her design exposure ranges from facilities management to office and retail design to her most previous experience being in healthcare design. As a Designer for Canter, Samantha contributes her design expertise by helping clients find the best direction for functional, efficient, productive and aesthetically pleasing environments, all while staying within budget.
Various design outlets peak her interest and keep her busy in her free time such as graphic design, sculpture, calligraphy, and fashion illustration. Outside of the workplace, you can find her snapping selfies with dormant volcanoes, looking for her next solo travel destination or spending time with her nephew (and the rest of her family, of course). She’s a tea drinker, snake lover and enjoys a good laugh.
