I very much believe in "SWELL" living and the West Side is a place where that lifestyle is possible. More importantly, the diversity and thriving community found on the West Side make it a wonderful place to raise my two young boys.

I moved to the Westside of Providence in 2001, after living in Boston for 6 years. I was immediately attracted to the eclecticism and the historicity of Providence. And I was especially excited by the creative entrepreneurial energy popping up all over the Westside. I was excited and confident in investing here in home, and business, and opened my first personal training studio in 2003 on Westminster St. I'm proud to be vice-president of the WBNA, and to chair its Community Development Committee, and to have served on various ad hoc committees. I also serve on the Providence Economic Development Partnership, and the Providence Revolving Fund's Neighborhood Review Board.

I love the West Side of Providence for many reasons – its cultural and economic diversity, amazing food scene, historic architecture, its park and Castle – but most of all because it feels real, it feels like home. People say hello, take care of their neighbors, and truly care about one another in a way that I have not experienced elsewhere.

The West Side is such a lively and special community – great food, interesting shops, and great neighbors. I love the positive energy that flows through these streets!

As a freelancer who works from home, I spend a lot of time in the neighborhood. I can't think of a better place to work and live than the West Side.
