A little about me

Hello, world!

My name is Samantha Jones, but everyone calls me Sammi. I live in a small town in Western North Carolina and have been here since 2000. Before finding the beautiful Smoky Mountains I'm originally from Denver, CO but have spent most of my life here in NC.

I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2012 (GO CATS!) with a degree in Communication Public Relations and Broadcasting. I worked in the PR world in Atlanta after graduating, but found my way back home and have been working at a Community College ever since.

I always knew I wanted to help people, and I wasn't sure what that was going to look like. But here I am working with students as an Academic Advisor helping them reach their goals. I truly love what I do, but I knew I wanted something more. So, in 2020 I finally took a leap of faith and applied for graduate school, and was accepted, and well... the rest is history. I'm currently in my fourth semester of graduate school working towards a degree in Innovative Leadership Entrepreneurship.

I've discussed my higher education experience, but the inner entrepreneur in me is waiting to take flight. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and look forward to tapping into my more creative side and learning how to expand my horizons.
