Sam is an avid coffee drinker, and loves a good slice of New York pizza. Her cool and relaxed personality results in her reading often and playing her Nintendo Switch. She is currently undefeated in Mario Kart and Mario Party, and is always willing to take on a new challenge. On her time away from work, she is usually with her partner and puppy discovering all that Miami has to offer. She is typically an introvert but enjoys getting out once in a blue moon to enjoy Wynwood and Miami Beach. A fun fact about Sam is that she loves to bake, but never eats what she bakes. She enjoys baking for the enjoyment of others. Her favorite thing to bake is pie, because the complicated instructions behind it makes for a perfect relaxing evening. Sam’s shares this love for baking with her step sisters, Bri and Gabby. Every holiday break when she travels home, they stay up all night catching up and baking until they fall asleep. While she misses home, she cannot wait to see the new adventure that awaits at Toppel and Miami!

The following is her advice to current students: “In college, I made a lot of mistakes. I was unsure of my path in life and really took a lot of risks regarding my professional and academic life. Despite my uncertainty with my career and professional life I was highly involved on my college campus. I volunteered to assist the Veterans Center with academic and financial advising for Veterans transitioning from Military to Civilian life. I was also involved with the Veteran’s Student Association, Runway (fashion show club), and The student Center. I was a building manager for my entire collegiate career and was involved with orientation for 3 years. My proudest moment in my life was graduating with my Master’s degree and furthering my education. If I could give advice to my younger self, it would be to chime into my talents earlier.”
