Director of Community Benefits
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
I focus on building affordable housing in Boston and creating prosperous communities. Boston is the third most expensive city in the United States, right behind New York and San Francisco. Lower-income residents in Boston often bear extremely high rent burdens, sometimes paying more than 75 percent of their income on rent, often causing families to forgo addressing critical health needs. I work to create more affordable housing opportunities, connect residents to needed services, and design programs and systems that support healthy communities.
