Samantha, a recent graduate from Woodbury University with a Bachelors of Architecture degree. I have worked for a design/ build firm on a variety of project types. I am ready to learn, divulge, and share new ideas within the design industry. I am motivated to work in a fast-paced environment and collaborate in creative scenarios. I wish to build on my career and I am ready to take on more responsibilities and I am very eager to learn new tasks. I am well organized, punctual, and motivated to do everything with great precision. I can work on multiple projects at a time with ease and always with the highest quality of detail. My outgoing attitude allows me to work well with others and I enjoy taking initiative when a leader must rise to the occasion.
