How many years have you been working with the BPD? 4. I actually worked at the May Institute in the afterschool program (before working at E-5).
Why did you want to be the community service liaison? I grew up in West Roxbury, so when I saw the link between being between the police and the community I think I’d be pretty good at it.
What do you like best about the job? That I get to run all of the events like and do the softball games with the kids.
Favorite place to eat in West Roxbury? and . I always get the Turkey Terrific and the Uncle Junior. It’s so good.
Favorite thing about West Robxury? Everybody is really involved in the community. All the neighbors seem to really care about their neighborhood and that’s why it’s a nice place to work and live.
Hobbies: I run. Just did the marathon.
Where's your favorite place to run? I don’t enjoy castle island too windy. I usually love running down the VFW Parkway and all the way back down Centre Street.
