As the multimedia and news production coordinator for IU Communications, Samantha brings the written word to life through the use of visual elements. She provides multimedia support for the news team writers by creating videos and graphics to accompany news releases and newsletter stories.

Prior to this role, she served as the social media specialist at IU Communications, where she managed IUPUI’s official social media accounts. This role gave Sam her first opportunity to expand her visual communication skills by creating original multimedia content such as videos, graphics, infographics, blogs, and other multimedia projects.
