PhD Organizational Leadership, MA Teaching, BA English
My name is Samantha Ventura, and I oversee all of the learning development for the DevOpsLibrary. While I
used to have more time to be involved, I now support the library as a visiting contributor and advocate. I
am a native Californian, and have been in the field of education for the past 20 years. I received my BA
degree in English from San Diego State University, then later my Masters in Teaching (MA.T), with a
specialization in Reading. The focus of my PhD work is Organizational Leadership and I have worked as an
executive trainer and learning coach, specializing in the areas of higher education and diversity awareness.
I am currently the Senior Vice President of Education and Training at CEDIA.
In my spare time I love everything outdoors, including skiing, fishing, camping and spending time with my family.
