Samantha is an Associate Professional and current Educator, currently in pursuit of licensure. She has always had a curious approach to the world around her, which led her to study architecture. She graduated with her Master of Architecture from Florida International University and a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Florida. After graduation, she worked at architecture firms, gaining invaluable experience. While she deals with challenges, she continues in pursuit of her architecture license. She enjoys giving of her time and energy to help others, namely, mentorship and volunteering. Some of her interests include sustainability, healthcare design, and cycling. In 2023, she restarted the Architecture club at Miami Dade College’s North Campus where she continues to encourage students to get involved within their communities. Samantha is a current AIA Associate member and sits on the AIA Miami Board as Miami Dade College School of Architecture representative. After licensure, Samantha hopes to use her registration to broaden her professional abilities.
