Q: What do you do in the City?
A: I work as the City’s Construction Oversite Manager in the Department of Public Works. As part of my job, I work closely with outside contractors to ensure that we are getting a properly finished product for road construction, landscaping, and other miscellaneous projects throughout the city. However, when the pandemic hit, it was suddenly clear I needed to help in a different capacity. That’s when I started working at the food distribution events and keeping inventory of PPE for all city departments.
Q: What did you do throughout the pandemic?
A: I am in charge of keeping inventory and distribution of PPE to all city departments. I volunteered at various food distribution efforts for the city and I am part of the Revere Covid-19 Community Response Network team.
Q: What is your favorite part about working in the city?
A: My favorite part about working for the city is making a difference daily.
Q: When did you start working in Revere?
A: My family and I are proud, lifelong residents of Revere for 3 generations. I started working for the city in November 2018. Three years later, I have learned so much about local government, municipal operations, and learned so much from the residents. I love my job.
Q: What does public service mean to you?
A: Public service to me is trying to make a difference in the quality of life and quality of services offered to the residents.
Q: What are you excited about for the future of Revere?
A: I am excited about the direction that the city is going and growing. Seeing the changes in the city from when I was younger to now is amazing. I am excited to be part of what's next!
