Communications Intern


  • Best Accokeek Memory

Discovering that our hogs naturally smell like maple syrup!

  • Favorite Part of the Farm

I love the dock overlooking the river. It’s a very peaceful place to pass the time.

  • If I could be one of the farm animals…

Cows are my spirit animals.

Sami  joined the Accokeek Foundation in winter of 2017 as an intern in the marketing department. Ms. Benedict is currently enrolled as a student at the University of Maryland where she anticipates receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies.  Working with the foundation has given Sami the opportunity to develop her professional skills and to foster her love for the environment. When she is not in the office, Sami likes to spend her time hiking with her boyfriend, traveling across the world, and unsuccessfully trying to develop her green thumb. She currently resides in University Park, Maryland.
