Samara joined ECOSS in 2021 as heritage Spanish speaker. She manages projects around reducing waste in multi-family housing, SPU’s Community Connection projects, and King County & SPU’s RainWise program. Because of her background in sustainable development she is also involved in other industrial green stormwater infrastructure projects and in clean energy projects. Samara also supports ECOSS’ Communications Manager given her background in environmental justice storytelling. Samara’s favorite food is tacos, and she highly recommends the Netflix Original series “Taco Chronicles” so everyone else realizes the complexity and wonderful world of tacos.
