More Information

Twelve years ago, Hallberg started with the Girl Scouts tasked with one overarching goal: Combine three councils in Worcester, East Longmeadow and Florence together.

In March, the final piece of that effort was complete, when the Girl Scouts moved into their new facility on Century Drive in Worcester, matching a similar one the council built in Holyoke. The new facilities are meant to help the nonprofit focus on serving its girls and optimize its cookie-selling season near the start of each year, which accounts for about 60% of the nonprofit’s revenue. Beyond the Girl Scouts, Hallberg makes her influence known throughout the community, particularly by serving on the boards for Investing in Girls Alliance, the Employers Association of the Northeast and the United Way Women’s Initiative Leadership Council.

What makes Central Mass. unique? Worcester is uniquely positioned geographically between the huge city of Boston and the bucolic landscape of Central and Western Mass. The people here make the difference. They are able to pull all of the diversity of the area together, build on the academic environment and growing economy to make the region a vibrant cultural and economic force.

Land of the Rising Sun: While I was in college my family lived in Tokyo, Japan. I spent a lot of time exploring the city and the countryside.
