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, Sophie (age 5) and Nathaniel (age 3), and ecstatic wife to one (her very own Mr. Darcy). Sophie and Nathanielare bursting with energy and creativity. Sophie has been in ballet since 3 and Nathaniel loves karate; they both love music as much as their father and we plan to start piano and violin lessons. 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 tv 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.
SB: As a mother in the pre-MBA process, childcare is a huge challenge because you essentially need more help outside of traditional childcare hours. My kids have always struggled with an early bedtime and my husband often has evening events to attend, so GMAT studying another work can’t be started until fairly late most nights. I am handling these challenges with an excellent combination of embracing sleep deprivation and increasing efficiency. Staying up until 3AM and then getting up a few hours later to make an early morning meeting is not ideal but it is a requirement of the season I am in.
