Sam Nilsson

Environmental Scientist

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest and spending my early days working on the Puget Sound, I’ve always had a fascination with the water, rocks, and life that make up our natural environment. As part of Herrera’s Water Group, I get to work on projects that help our communities live and grow sustainably within this environment. When not working, I can be found exploring, playing with my dog, or attempting to brew a drinkable beer.
