Risa Ferrara is September’s Public Servant of the Month

August 31, 2021

Q: What do you do in the City? 
A: I work at the Garfield Elementary School as a school nurse.

Q: What did you do throughout the pandemic?

A: I have been working since March 2020 with a great group of people which is why I continue to do this work daily.  At the beginning of the pandemic all the nurses asked what we could do to help.  It was a new learning experience for all of us, but we were ready and willing to do what needed to be done.   My day typically starts around 5:30/6am.  Each day I gather information on all the new daily cases so that a daily report can be sent to the Emergency Response Team.  I also meet weekly with the contract tracing team to discuss what happened over the last week and how we can improve as a city.  There is still work to be done but we have come a long way since the beginning.  I plan on continuing to do this until the end. 

Q: What is your favorite part about working in the city?  

A: My favorite part of working in the city is the new relationships I have made over the years.  It's like one big family.

Q: When did you start working in Revere? 

A: This is my sixth year working for the city of Revere.

Q: What does public service mean to you?  

A: Public Service for me is making sure I always do my best and hope that what I do will make a difference.

Q: What are you excited about for the future of Revere?  

A: Growing up in Revere, I have seen a lot of changes.  I love all the changes that have been made and continue to be made especially all the restaurant choices.  I enjoy going out to eat and look forward to more options in the future.
