An Experienced Public Servant Committed to Cambridge
I am currently serving my first term as a Cambridge City Councillor.
The City of Cambridge has shaped who I am in many ways. I grew up here, and after law school, I returned home with the goal to serve my community. I have always been committed to service and have worked actively to develop stronger, more representative communities wherever I have lived. It is a privilege to focus my energy on Cambridge.
My main committment is my work as a Cambridge City Councillor. I also work about 12 hours a week as an attorney at Northeast Legal Aid, a non-profit organization that provides free legal services to low-income and elderly people in northeastern Massachusetts. Specifically, I represent low-income entrepreneurs and small-business owners. I help individuals achieve self-sufficiency and get closer to their version of the American dream. This work promotes positive, community-based, economic growth.
I am a member of the South Asian Bar Association of Greater Boston, and the Women’s Bar Association, and the National Organization of Legal Services Workers - UAW Local 2320.
As an active member in the Cambridge community, I am currently a board member of the Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School Alumni Association. I am a former board member of the Cambridge School Volunteers, Inc., and a former Commissioner on the Cambridge Human Services Commission.
My leadership skills, experience in community advocacy, and background as a Cambridge native provide me with an authentic and unique perspective for Cambridge politics.
Shaping the Future of Cambridge Together
As I spend the next six months campaigning, I will develop a platform informed by issues Cambridge voters care about.
I will need your help canvassing, knocking on doors, and making phone calls. I would love to have you as a team member!
