"Asha immigrated to Boston at a young age—growing up in Roxbury and attending Madison Park. Her leadership will help us get City Hall out of City Hall, addressing the everyday concerns of families as our new Roxbury neighborhood liaison," said Mayor Wu.
The Office of Neighborhood Services liaisons play an important role in connecting residents to City services and resources by facilitating citizen input in all aspects of local government through service requests, attending neighborhood meetings, and emergency responses.
Asha was born in Somalia and raised in Roxbury. She attended Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School and graduated from Madison Park Technical Vocational High School before earning her bachelor's degree in psychology from Lesley University. Asha previously worked at MCPAP for Moms as a Resource and Referral Specialist, helping pregnant and postpartum individuals and families access treatment and support throughout Massachusetts.
