Samantha Smith-Herndon

A mother, student, writer, photographer, and all-around awesome human-being! A Greensboro, North Carolina native, Samantha always seems to find herself back in this region. She is currently a research associate for a group of plant scientists at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research, working primarily in precision agriculture and remote sensing. Aside from building compacity for her community, Samantha enjoys going on strolls through the Old West End, riding bikes, and visiting the library all with her son and dog.


“I love the sense of community here, the River Walk, the people, the ease of access to resources, and the downtown area!”
