Summary of Experience

She currently works for a software development company as a personal assistant and blogger, traveling throughout the state to research and observe technology, start up culture, and innovation. The goal of this blog is to not only spread information, but to help her local community grow and thrive.

Projects by Writing Style
Journalistic

In an ongoing blog series, Samantha traveled to cities throughout California in an attempt to bring innovation and progress to our city. Bakersfield is woefully behind the times right now in terms of tech culture and startup community, so she is traveling around the state to see how other areas promote advancement in these fields. She found that maker spaces and coworking spaces are often filled with innovation, and that they really understand their local communities as far as technology and support for startup businesses.
