As a young person, I was exposed to the harsh realities of racism and violence while growing up in East Boston. These experiences led me to the decision that I wanted to spend my life building bridges between people and strengthening communities, not dividing them. My rising story spans decades of service in the public and nonprofit sectors of the Greater Boston area. Today, I am Vice President for Programs at the Boston Foundation, an organization whose mission it is to ensure that justice and opportunity are extended to everyone in Boston.
