Samantha Broxton About

Corporate Chic. Freelance Writer. Photographer.Speaker. Social Media Addict. Bookworm. Wanderer.

Hi! I’m Samantha, a Jill of many random trades (hence the nickname: Random Sam). Born to Caribbean immigrants, I grew up in South Florida, where I spent many hours reading period or science fiction novels and watching films released decades prior to my conception. I graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Finance, where left my mark as an insanely active student leader and learned to be less of an introvert. I went on to secure a Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling with a specialization in Business from Liberty University.

Personally, I’m a hipster mom and chill wife (to my very own Mr. Darcy). When I’m not spending 50 hours a week in the office, I volunteer with Bankers Without Borders, speak publicly to anyone who will listen, and live tweet my favorite shows (mostly sci-fi and period dramas).

Passionately, I love photography and visual storytelling. I run a successful natural hair and living blog: Sisterlocked.com. I’m also known for making my own skincare products and traditional organic and natural dishes from scratch. I also run a candid blog about parenting, relationships, and work-life-balance called RaisingSelf.

Professionally, I’ve done everything from originating and managing multi-million dollar commercial loans to data analytics, and even leading a failed internet start-up. Currently, I’m a Project Manager for a global fortune 500 company in sunny Southern California.

I am currently available for photography and speaking engagements, contact me for further details.
