Before joining New Paradigm, Audra worked as a press assistant in the Office of Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, where she crafted and deployed strategic, crisis communications, created web content for digital engagement, and triaged rapid-response media inquiries. Prior to working in the Governor’s Office, she served the Commonwealth as a member of the strategy team at the Executive Office of Technology Services and Security, where she collaborated with government customers in developing and implementing communications strategies related to digital and technology change. She was also involved in the Mass.gov redesign project to overhaul and rebuild Massachusetts’ antiquated website.
