Samanta graduated Summa Cum Laude from The University of Texas at San Antonio in 2006 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. Since then, she has worked in a variety of industries including restaurants, real estate and construction, and international tax. Her extensive experience also includes nine years in the banking industry in Mexico. Bolstering her professional background, she became a distinguished graduate of the Texas CPA Society of San Antonio CPA Leadership Advantage program in 2012.
Outside of the office, Samanta likes to exercise, visit state parks, read non-fiction and watch documentaries, and visit museums with her two young daughters. The cause closest to her heart is the advancement of people with disabilities. She served as Treasurer at disABILITYsa from April 2017 through June 2019.
Samanta loves to learn about various cultures, their history, and their architecture. It is no surprise that when she was little, her dream was to become an archaeologist. She says she would love to visit every archaeological site in the world, starting with Mexico, Peru, and Egypt. She has already visited Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Comalcalco. She and her husband also visited Playa del Carmen, but she had to compromise with him to split their time between exploring ruins and relaxing on the beach with a cerveza.
International flavors are also in her repertoire, as Samanta enjoys cooking international cuisines (Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Indian are on her menu) and exploring foreign grocery stores.
