JP resident Jullieanne Doherty has been named to fill the post of Jamaica Plain Coordinator in the Office of Neighborhood Services at City Hall, according to a press release.
“I’m very excited about this opportunity as it’s an honor to help serve the community that I live in,” Doherty said in that press release. “It’s a thrill for me to be a part of the Mayor’s team, helping my neighbors and fellow residents to make our wonderful city the very best it can be.”
After graduating with honors in 2007 from Regis College in Weston after only three years, Doherty worked as program coordinator at the Fields Corner Main Street office in Dorchester, acting as a liaison to community members, neighborhood committees and small business owners to resolve various issues.
“I want to welcome Jullieanne to my Office of Neighborhood Services and am looking forward to her working with community members to improve their quality of life,” Mayor Thomas Menino said in that release. “I am confident that her experience as Program Coordinator at the Fields Corner Main Street office and the Boston Children’s Chorus as well as her knowledge of our city will serve her well in this very important role working with the community.”
Doherty has also been a volunteer with the Boston Salvation Army Emergency Team, the 2006 Democratic Convention, and the Great Boston Food Bank. She also was a member of the Sumner Hill Neighborhood Association.
The JP coordinator for ONS serves as the mayor’s eyes and ears for the neighborhood, as well as helping guide residents through city processes.
The previous JP Coordinator, Colleen Keller, left her job after three years for a position at Harvard’s School of Public Health. She is a life-long resident of JP.
The main line for the neighborhood service’s office is 635-3485. Doherty does not yet have a direct number available.
