I am excited to have begun working at the MOD as the Grant Compliance Coordinator. In this position I am responsible for serving as the liaison between municipalities and the MOD when it comes to the Municipal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Improvement Grant program which began in the 2017 fiscal year, as well as confirming compliance with awarded municipalities. I was born in Boston and have lived in Malden MA for my entire life. I have always been interested in government and serving the people around me through government work which is what brought me to finding employment with MOD. I love the idea that I am participating in a program that is helping to secure the right of access to people across the Commonwealth.
Prior to coming to work at the MOD while in college, I served as the Public Policy Intern at the Metro West Chamber of Commerce evaluating pending legislation in the Massachusetts State House and writing reports on how said legislation would affect business and industries in the state. I also worked as a Resident Assistant while in college for 3 years helping students with academic and personal issues, while ensuring safety in the Resident Hall.
I attended Framingham State University and Graduated with a degree in Political Science with a Criminology minor. I was also quite involved in Student Government and had the honor of serving as the Student Trustee for 2 years. I look forward to working with the Commonwealth’s residents. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries about the Municipal ADA Improvement Grant Program at (617)-727-7440. Thank you!
