Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Samantha is studying a year off-campus at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center. She is inspired by the story that creates a place and believes architecture has the ability to connect its past with its future. The city is her ultimate classroom as she discovers this concept in action. Outside of the office and studio, Samantha may be working on an art project, cooking a new recipe, or exploring the DC area with her fellow students.
