Samantha LeWinter, Digital Strategy Manager, joined iluma Agency in April 2017. She brings a wealth of expertise and talent to our LocalLight digital marketing program, the value of which can be seen every day as we continue to drive better and better results for the franchise locations we work with. Equipped with bright ideas and strong opinions as she lights the way to successful campaigns, Samantha truly does what it takes to help businesses shine. She’s also a pleasure to work with and simply to know.
Samantha grew up in Weston, Florida, but has also lived in DC and New York, where she gained experience in her roles as Digital Advertising Consultant, Key Account Manager, and Marketing Director. A graduate of Florida State University and jack of all trades, her major in interdisciplinary studies included a focus on public health and administration. Samantha is now a certified HIV counselor who has a passion for helping others and making the world a better place.
Her acts of good will extend to the animal world as well. With a self-professed “rescue problem,” Samantha sometimes tries to find homes for animals she can’t adopt herself. Even when she was little, she cared for injured turtles she found, then released them once they were better. Her current fur family includes a hound mix named Penelope and a shepherd mix named Tela.
One of Samantha’s recent hobbies is renovating the new house she shares with her husband, Eric. Eric is also a graduate of Florida State University. He and Samantha met each other 8 years ago, started dating 5 years ago, and have been married for 2 years. A rainy day, complete with a tornado, wasn’t enough to stop their wedding at the Stranahan House in the New River area of Fort Lauderdale. For their honeymoon, they enjoyed island hopping in the Southern Caribbean.
Traveling is another passion Samantha shares with our team. Her travel bug has taken her spelunking through rainforest caves in Belize as well as off-roading to a beach in St. Lucia surrounded by gorgeous mountains. She likes trying food from around the world, too, with a special love for Thai, Indian, and Korean food. Whether traveling the world or keeping it local, Samantha has an appreciation for the outdoors and any outdoor activities, recounting learning to sail with her dad in the Keys and expressing interest in hiking Kilimanjaro.
One more fun fact about Samantha is that she loves music and going to concerts—especially small music festivals. A fan of Lollapalooza, she also attended the first ever Hangout Festival.
iluma Agency Digital Strategy Manager Samantha LeWinter looks forward to continuing to drive results for your marketing campaign or beginning to work with you in the near future. If you have any questions for her, don’t hesitate to ask.
