In October of 2021, I got the opportunity to come back to the City working as the Executive Assistant for the Mayor’s office. In my time here, I’ve been able to foster my relationship with City leadership and the Westbrook Community, as my role grew in the City, I began working more with the City Clerk’s Office with office assistance and elections. In June 2023, I accepted an offer of becoming the Deputy City Clerk (Elections Administrator), which allows me more time to work directly with our community, helping them partake in their right to vote. I previously worked for the City of Westbrook in another capacity from 2016-2018. I came back to Westbrook because this is my home. I grew up in Westbrook and have established myself here. When I first came to work for the City, I instantly felt the camaraderie among the group. We are all here to work towards the same goal, which is to better our community for our citizens and visitors. I would absolutely recommend working for the City of Westbrook. Westbrook has always been a growing community, but I take pride that Westbrook has always maintained a small hometown feel. Our residents are proud of being from Westbrook and I love the collaboration between our residents and the City to create a community that people want to be a part of. What I love most about being a Deputy City Clerk for the City is the variety of work. Every day presents a different opportunity. I get to interact with employees from all departments and I also get to have daily interaction with our citizens. I love being able to connect with everyone.
