Manager of Org Analysis and HR-CRM
"I joined the MBTA as a result of my father adding my name into the Lottery. I began my career in 1993 as a Part-time Bus Operator and rose through the ranks, holding such positions as Full-time Bus Operator, Inspector, Supervisor, Superintendent of Bus Operations, Chief of Staff for Operations COO, Chief and Deputy Director of Orange Line Operations, Director of Heavy Rail Operations, Chief Administration officer up to my current position as Deputy Chief Operating Officer. I worked hard and was blessed that management recognized me. I always enjoyed working with and helping people. The MBTA has given me the opportunity to do what I love and collaborate my passion with over 5300 other people that work in Operations. I have stayed at the MBTA simply because I love it!"
Deputy Chief Operating Officer - Administration
"I have been with the MBTA for almost 18 years and I have always been engaged in offering assistance to ensure the success of day-to-day operations which has made me aware of the extensive work that needs to be done in order to transport the citizens of the Commonwealth and its visitors. My time in Human Resources helped me develop an understanding of the many facets of Operations (transportation, maintenance, planning, and engineering) as well as developing a greater appreciation of how the non-operating departments play a vital role in supporting the overall Operations mission. This experience afforded me the opportunity to grow as an employee and advance my career through different roles which has landed me in Operations where I can have a more direct impact on its success. The opportunity to collaborate with employees in all areas of Operations has taught me more about the Authority as well as the dedication these employees have to the MBTA. Gaining this experience has helped me grow personally and professionally and enriched my career at the Authority."
