Asami Tanimoto, Community Program Manager

Asami caught the recycling bug during her master’s program in Sustainability Management at Columbia University. Since then, she has worked with Columbia University, a business improvement district in New York City, and numerous other businesses across the US to develop and implement waste diversion strategies.

Prior to returning to school, Asami had a 10-year career as an air quality, odor, and noise consultant and worked with a wide range of public- and private-sector clients.

When she’s not home baking or cooking, Asami is out camping, hiking, biking, paddling, climbing, snowshoeing, or skiing.
