My name is Samantha Shephard and I recently graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) with a Bachelor of Arts and Communications in Advertising and Spanish. I am passionate about being able to communicate and embrace as many people as possible in a unique and creative way. Advertising and Spanish allow me to do both! I possess a strong work ethic which is reflected in my achievements and on-campus involvement shown below.
