ISI welcomes Jillian Samowitz

We are delighted to announce that Jillian Samowitz has joined the team at ISI, as our Member Relations Specialist.

Jillian will be a critical resource to help ISI achieve its goals in the areas of member engagement, growth, and retention.

She notes: “One of the biggest challenges that we face today as we look to mitigate the effects of climate change is implementing sustainable infrastructure.” While this is a massive undertaking, she adds, it is also an incredible opportunity.

Jillian’s sustainability journey began in 2010 when the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill inspired her to create, with her twin sister, a nonprofit called Proseed2Green, focused on environmental education and action. She went on to deliver a TEDx talk on the power of youth activism based on her experience in this grassroots movement.

“As a lifelong advocate for the environment, I am inspired by ISI’s commitment to empower professionals to become sustainability subject-matter experts through Envision. I look forward to helping to foster relationships among our members and staff through ISI’s membership program.”

She is currently based out of Atlanta, GA, and prior to coming to ISI, she worked as the Assistant Director of Admission at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Previously, she lived in Florida, where at one time she was a VIP Tour Guide at the Walt Disney World Resort.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in Sustainability Studies from the University of Florida, and is also a Project Management Professional (PMP).
