Tamara Cardona-Marek

Senior Brownfield Consultant

Tamara Cardona-Marek joined CCLR after 15 years working in state government. Most recently she worked for the WA State Department of Ecology on the development of the Affordable Housing Cleanup Grant Program, a new effort to fund cleanups of Brownfields for reuse as affordable housing. These cleanups are focused on providing a benefit to communities by reducing displacement and gentrification. Tamara is also experienced in cleanup oversight as she supervised the team leading the state portion of the Lower Duwamish Waterway cleanup in WA.

Prior to working for the state of WA, Tamara worked for the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation for 8 years overseeing the cleanup of contaminated sites.

Early in her career, Tamara worked for EPA Region 2, and for the US Geological Survey. She completed her undergrad in Environmental Sciences at the University of Puerto Rico; a PhD, also in Environmental Sciences, at Rutgers University, and a postdoc at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. ​
