Thank you for taking the time to visit my new and improved website!  I am appreciative for your interest in the work I do on a daily basis to advocate for and represent the 14th Worcester District.  Since being elected in a special election in 2007, I have taken pride in standing up for working families and vulnerable populations in the Commonwealth.  

In my former career as a social worker for over 24 years, I came to understand the various pitfalls and challenges working families and individuals face across Massachusetts.  It was that rewarding work in my career as a social worker that provided the motivation to put my neck out there and run for State Representative, in the hopes that I could actually make a difference.  I am humbled and grateful that the people of the 14th Worcester District have believed in me enough to re-elect me two times since 2007.  Born and raised in Worcester, I do this work and continue to run for this office because of my love for the Central MA region, the City of Worcester and the Town of West Boylston, in particular.
