Sam decided to pursue development when she realized her lifelong love of talking to people had a place and purpose in the movement for climate justice. Currently, Sam lives in her hometown of Brooklyn, New York while wrapping up her Master’s Degree in Public Administration from CUNY Baruch College. Although her background includes volunteer and educational programming, most recently she stewarded corporate partnerships at Transportation Alternatives, in addition to chairing the Transportation Alternatives Union. She is thrilled to join the coalition and support organized farmers across the country. She enjoys baking, reading, and early morning off-leash hours with her jack russell/cattle dog mix, Kelly.
