Samantha manages the Beall Center at UC Irvine. She has degrees in Art and Economics; has produced numerous community programs; is involved in developments around STEAM education; and is collaborating on a STEAM Robotics camp at UCI. She and her husband Chris are also the Owners/Broker of University Realty. Samantha strives to keep a balance between her passions for art and education alongside her skills at sales and business. Going on her third year working with the OCMMF team, Samantha is thankful for the day Bequi walked into the Beall office and asked “Do you know who I’d talk to about putting on a Mini Maker Faire?” And the rest is happy history.
