As a survivor of a near-fatal car accident, it was almost impossible for Samantha Roberts to think she’d survive–let alone bounce back as one of the top executives in the cosmetics industry. Her attempts to seek help from her post-accident pains was an eye-opening turning point. She quickly discovered she had it harder than everybody else. And still, she persisted and persevered through it all. Samantha is now a flourishing strategic analyst working as the Director of Sales Planning at MAC Cosmetics in New York and specializes in data warehousing, reporting analytics, corporate restructuring, and executive onboarding of businesses.
