I’d like to say hello to all the readers of the HBI blog. My name is Elizabeth Bronshteyn. I’m a resident of Brighton and I am a new intern at the HBI. I am working on ways to quantify the social and economic impacts of HBI’s pipeline of ongoing and completed projects.
My background is in history of architecture. I recently graduated Harvard and wanted to gain experience in urban planning before embarking on a journey towards graduate school. An internship with HBI is a dream coming true. Not only do I get to employ my research skills and education in art history, but I also get to be a part of a vital revitalization process in Boston.
The first week at HBI was full of exciting experiences. Kathy Kottaridis invited me to the December Board meeting, where I met many passionate members of the Board and its Advisory Council. I have also invited to meetings with architects and contractors, and had a tour of the Alvah Kittredge House in construction.
I’m looking forward to working at HBI. Stay tuned for more updates!
