Seattle City (spot)Light: Losi Namoa

Losi Namoa will be celebrating one year at City Light in January 2021. As a lead janitor in Facilities, Security and Emergency Management (FSEM), her job “is to ensure that the team and I work safely and proficiently to assure cleanliness at its finest to all employees and the public.”

Born and raised in Hawaii, Losi wanted to experience life on the mainland and began her journey to the East Coast before ending up on the West coast for good. “I explored Washington and discovered its beauty, fell in love with all four seasons, ate the one and only Rainer Cherries, and have grown to appreciate the values instilled into my humble life here,” Losi shared.

In this week’s (spot)Light, Losi talks about her life in Washington, the hobbies she’s acquired over quarantine, and what she’s enjoyed most about her time at City Light.

“I currently live in Tukwila, where I enjoy the rugby and soccer matches at Starfire Sports, the seafood markets, community involvements, and all of the active noise from birds to aircrafts. My favorite day is everyday! Bonus when the Seahawks are playing. It brings the family together and we all enjoy good food, company, and debates.  Beside game-day, I also volunteer in the community and enjoy connecting with those around me. Since COVID, I’ve picked up a new interest in reading National Geographic magazines and watching UFC sports entertainment. So far, the skills of orcas and Joaquin Buckley are fascinating.”

“To be honest, I was attracted to City Light by the big neon rooftop sign on 4th Avenue. Of course, I did my research too, and once I did, I absolutely knew I was a ‘City Lighter’! I love the commitment of serving and servicing the public while being able to grow and overcome obstacles together with the community at the same time. City Light is an amazing organization.”

“Working at City Light has been an awesome experience. I love the environment, core values, challenging growth, connectivity, learning curves, the city of Seattle, and the FSEM team! I believe my time here has just begun, and I’m excited to give it my best shot.”
