Kisha and Craig Samuel married in 2014 and are blessed to have joined our families of five amazing children. Craig is a native of St. Johns, Antigua who relocated to New York in the ’90s and ultimately to Maryland. He is currently pursuing a Masters in Cybersecurity at UMBC and is an AWS and Cybersecurity Consultant delivering solutions to commercial and federal clients.
Kisha was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. During her adult life, she visited many Christian churches but could not acquire a true understanding of Christ’s teachings. As Craig shared his Christian knowledge and experiences, she became curious about the Adventist teachings. Soon after relocating to Maryland, Kisha was inspired and called to become baptized at TPC this past April. For over 20 years she has applied her Information System degree to enable Digital Transformation in the Healthcare industry.
Their children, Keona, Kyla, Kathryn, Kaylee, and Dylan range in ages of 28 through 15 years old. Keona the eldest is a Senior Recruiter with a focus on Diversity and Inclusion in New York. She holds a Masters of Public Administration from Baruch College and mentors high school students to help prepare them for success. She enjoys traveling and absorbing world cultures.
