Corporate Chic. Freelance Writer. Speaker. Commentator. Bookworm. Wanderer.
Samantha Broxton is a Jill of many random trades (hence her nickname: Random Sam). Born to Caribbean immigrants, Samantha grew up in South Florida, where she was widely known as an awkward duck that spent way too many hours reading period or science fiction novels and watching films released decades prior to her conception. She went on to graduate from the University of South Florida, where she left her mark as an insanely active student leader and learned to be less of an introvert.
Personally, Samantha is an accidental Mother of two and ecstatic wife to one (her very own Mr. Darcy). When she is not spending 50 hours a week in the office, she volunteers for Bankers Without Borders, speaks publicly to anyone who will listen, and live tweets her favorite shows. In her spare time (when she should be sleeping), Samantha also runs a successful natural hair and living blog: Sisterlocked.com and random life blog: RaisingSelf.com, as well as editing random life videos under her YouTube persona. She’s also known for making her own skincare products and food from scratch (her homemade vanilla whipped cream recipe is to die for!).
Professionally, Samantha’s done everything from originating and managing multi-million dollar commercial loans to leading a failed internet start-up. Currently, Samantha is a Commercial Risk Manager for a global fortune 500 company in sunny Southern California.
