Do you put a comma before since in We decided to meet there since she works nearby?

No. In your example, the word "since" is used as a conjunction, like the word "but" or the word "and" so no comma is required.

However, if you reversed the order of the phrases, you would need a comma to separate them, e.g., "Since she works nearby, we decided to meet there."
