I am very excited to start my position as the Training and Communications Specialist at the MOD.

My responsibilities focus on Statewide training and outreach to help strengthen the mission of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). I am a Boston native and spent numerous summers of my life working at Agassiz Village in Poland, ME where we hosted Easter Seals Explorers Week. I was responsible for running a cabin of campers with disabilities, and ensuring that everyone had an equal opportunity to live, work, play, and participate in all of our camp’s activities, while providing accommodations and assistance where needed.

Prior to working at MOD, I was Senior Outreach Coordinator for MassDOT’s Safe Routes to School program for 3 years. In this role I was responsible for overseeing all transportation safety programs and events throughout the Southeastern region of Massachusetts. I was also in charge of leading meetings and task force discussions with various civic and town offices regrading safe infrastructure, traffic decongestion, and aerial mapping initiatives.

I received my Bachelor in Science and Journalism from Suffolk University where I served as a Broadcast Journalism major, and my Master’s Degree in Communication Studies with a strong focus in public speaking, also at Suffolk.

I look very forward to working with the Commonwealth’s employees and residents. Please contact me to schedule a training or for updates about any of our upcoming events. I can be reached via email at, or by phone at (617)-727-7440 x27319. Thank you!
