Ms. Samra R. Savioz possesses more than 20 years of comprehensive experience in tracking market trends, increasing revenue, routinely exceeding sales goals, researching industries, and providing growth opportunities for businesses.

My college career was spent studying science with a focus on obtaining degrees in physiology and nutrition. Prior to my work at PPG Services, I established and founded an international non-profit charity with the mission of funding quality of life services for people suffering from neurodegenerative disease and cancers. I specialize in providing and teaching metabolic therapies; such as the restricted caloric ketogenic diet for cancer and continue to receive recommendations from several major universities. I donate my time to those in need and provide consulting through the non-profit I founded in 2008. My education in science has allowed me to develop more technical skills that also apply to business.
Lydia Sun is a class of 2020 graduate from MIT with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science. She grew up in the Bay Area and has returned after graduation to work as a media software engineer at Airtime, a local startup in the social media space. Her favorite subjects in school were math, physics, and anthropology, and her favorite tech topic is IoT devices. In her free time, she likes reading, running, and making art.
Julie Straub is a Graduate from Grove City College with a B.S. degree in Mathematics and Computer Systems and a Secondary Education Certification. I began my professional career in 1991 as an IT developer in PPG’s Coatings and Resins Corporate Division. Most of my 29-year career with PPG has been in the IT Function in progressing roles spanning across PPG’s strategic business units and functions. I’ve had the unique opportunity to hold two business roles. My first opportunity was early in my career as a pricing and planning business analyst, and later in Sales calling on Insurance Companies. I’ve held roles with global responsibility and had the opportunity to integrate a number of acquisitions into PPG. I enjoy the outdoors, sports, volunteering at my parish, and spending time with family and friends.
