Her decade-long service on Beacon Hill has provided her with the insight and fortitude to work alongside elected officials, labor, community advocates, stakeholders and everyday working people throughout the Commonwealth's cities and towns. Her humble beginnings, non-profit work and labor experience helped her nurture, cultivate, and develop relationships with a diverse expanse of people. Auditor DiZoglio began her public service in state government in 2013, serving as a state representative for the 14th Essex District, which included portions of North Andover, Methuen, Lawrence and Haverhill. She started her academic career at Middlesex Community College as a psychology major where she found confidence through small class sizes and guidance from professors.
