I am running for state representative for the 8th Suffolk District, which includes the Boston Neighborhoods of the West End, Beacon Hill, Back Bay and parts of the Fenway. As part of a Human Rights platform I am advocating for Bill H180, to end the use of high voltage, electric shock aversives on disabled individuals.

Education News

Completed a Masters Degree in Public Administration (MPA) at Suffolk University, in the Spring of 2024.

As part of this schoolwork, I oversaw a Moakley Entrepreneurial Practice Program (MEPP) Grant in Spring, 2024. Educational materials were developed for parents to learn about alternatives to Applied Behavioral Analysis for their autistic child through collaboration with autistic led organizations and experts. The website to view this work is InsteadofABA.org and will continue to be updated.

Current Advocacy Work

In the Boston Public Schools, as a parent representative, I am serving as secretary on the SPED PAC board. In this role I will continue to serve as a member of the Boston Public School's District Wellness Council.
