Samantha Harris

I am an artist, writer, and mother of two. I have spent nearly the entirety of my professional life loyally working in non-profit as I have a strong sense of justice and only feel fulfilled when I am helping or bringing joy to others. When I have not worked in non-profit, I have worked as an artist, creating handmade gifts, illustrating children's books, designing logos, and blogging. I enjoy learning all about/how to use new technologies and am always up for a good challenge. I work very well independently and require little supervision, but also appreciate working in a collaborative group.
