Samantha joined us in the Summer of 2014, working with the team to help coordinate events, major mailings, social media, and pretty much anything else that gets thrown her way. She helps bring the insight of the modern day audiences and, as a New Yorker, easily adapts to the fast-paced environment of assisting with Durga Tree and her father’s business.
In March 2014, Samantha graduated from Tiffin University with an associates degree in Business Administration and was looking for something bigger and better. Not knowing much about human trafficking and the effects it has, working with Durga Tree has really opened her eyes to this cause. Seeing the work that we do to help children and adults escape trafficking, she found it to be very inspiring.
During her time working at both Tim Tiger Enterprises and Durga Tree, Samantha was given more and more responsibility dealing with donations and invoicing, which led to her promotion to DTI’s Financial Director. She deals directly with our accounting firm, updating the software records and our donor database on a daily basis, developing budgeting reports, and working along side the Executive Director on all other areas where the finances of the organization are involved.
