Sam was born and raised in Covina, CA, and recently relocated from Washington, DC, where she spent the last nine years. Sam is extremely passionate about fighting against displacement and homelessness and loves doing eviction defense work. She practiced eviction defense in DC for six years before joining Centro Legal.
In her free time, Sam loves to read, practice yoga, and spend time with her incredible niece and nephews. One of the most impactful books she’s read recently is Know My Name by Chanel Miller. She really can’t recommend it enough. She also aspires to be outdoorsy. She’s been on one camping trip as an adult (to Banff in Alberta, Canada), but hopes to go on many more in the future. She is really looking forward to working with the entire Centro staff and looks forward to meeting folx in person at some point!
