Samantha Baars

Digital Content Manager

 Former News Reporter, C-VILLE Weekly

 B.A., James Madison University

 With SELC since 2019

A longtime follower of environmental news, Samantha had a chance to report on some during her time as the staff news reporter for C-VILLE Weekly. Now, as SELC’s Digital Content Manager, she uses her many talents to share the organization’s news with our audiences online, whether that be via email, Facebook, Instagram, or our website. A highlight of her work at SELC has been helping create and launch a campaign aimed at confronting climate change by cutting carbon emissions in her home state of Virginia.

Samantha grew up in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and now calls Charlottesville home.

When looking for an escape from social media, she heads east on I-64 until she hits Virginia Beach and the soothing sound of waves hitting the shores. 

The key to SELC’s success is our people. Consider joining our team to defend this region’s air, water, and natural treasures.
