Sarina brings her experience in water conservation education and project implementation to Environmental Incentives’ Water Practice. As Water Coordinator, Sarina draws on her background in providing excellent customer service and facilitating on-the-ground landscape transformations to support residential and commercial water conservation and stormwater pollution prevention projects.
Prior to joining EI, Sarina served as a Programs Coordinator facilitating hands-on programs providing participants the skills, tools, and resources to transform lawns into water-wise gardens, choose appropriate native-adapted and water-wise plants, convert irrigation from sprinklers to drip, install rain gardens and rain barrels, and install laundry-to-landscape graywater systems.
Sarina uses her strong ability to influence others to inspire them to become a part of the solution and focus on the actions they can take on their properties to save water, improve water quality, and save money. She believes in the power of local multi-benefit incentive programs to create lasting change in our communities.
