I have been employed with the City of Allentown for 24 years. During my 24 years of employment with the city, I have served and dedicated myself to numerous roles. I started as a Maintenance Worker and gradually elevated into different levels within the union and management positions within the Streets Department. These various roles include Streets Superintendent and Deputy Director of Public Works (2019). During 2019, I have taken charge of all operations and direction for all Public Works Departments such as Streets, Stormwater, Engineering, Fleet, Building Maintenance, Compliance, Recycling & Solid Waste, Traffic Planning, and Technical Services. I have most recently taken on the role of Director of Public Works in 2022.
I worked for the city for almost 33 years. I started as a custodian while I was in college and worked in many different departments (Building Maintenance, Park Maintenance, Recycling, Streets and back to Park Maintenance) before moving into leadership. I started in Park Maintenance as a supervisor then went to Risk Management as a Claims Coordinator then on to Streets as Chief Maintenance Supervisor in charge of Fleet. I then moved on to DCED as a Project Manager and now back where it started in Building Maintenance as Facilities Manager. I have served on several Boards and committees as a bargain unit employee as well as a manager.
