In addition, she served students on the Career Center’s internal diversity and inclusion committee, to ensure equitable career services and networking opportunities to UGA’s diverse student populations.
In her role as director of experiential programs, Samantha ensures all Grady College students are meeting the university’s experiential learning requirement, and putting their skills learned in Grady to use through internships, studying abroad, research and hands-on classroom experiences. She is also the staff advisor for the Grady-based Women in Media student organization.
