“I am honored to join the staff at Mechanics Hall. I began my career covering stories at the Hall for channel 3 and I also studied opera with Maria Ferrante and Jane Shivick. For a few years, I lived in NYC and was the Executive Assistant for James Taylor’s agent. It is exciting to return to my love of music and communications,” says Roy.
She began her role on October 1.
Roy spent a decade working as a reporter and news anchor for Worcester News Tonight. Roy has also been a Communications Specialist/Manager for Unum, Worcester Public Schools, and The International in Bolton.
During her time at Worcester News Tonight, Roy received a New England Cable Television Award for her story on “Autism in Worcester”.
In 2011, she cofounded the Young Professional Women’s Association to harness the power of young women in Central MA.
Roy is especially proud of creating Karaoke for a Cure, an event that has raised more than $100,000 for Pancreatic Cancer treatment and research at UMass Memorial Medical Center, which has since become an official fundraiser of the UMass Pancreatic Cancer Alliance.
