Jeanethe Falvey brings more than 10 years of experience in web communications and digital strategy to the City of Boston. Most recently, she served as the Director of Digital Strategy for National Geographic Society. As Director of Digital Strategy, Falvey led a team of producers, developers, product managers and social media managers to create an engaging digital experience for educators, grantees and supporters to access available resources and program experiences on nationalgeographic.org.
"To come home to the City of Boston in this capacity, with this responsibility, is an incredible honor," Falvey said. "Each day will be an opportunity for our team to facilitate a better experience, and to empower residents and visitors with greater access to information and services. I am incredibly excited to see what we can accomplish together."
Some of Falvey's most notable work includes the resurgence of DOCUMERICA and creation of State of the Environment, which are both platforms that use public photos to showcase changes in the country's environment and human health conditions since the 1970s. In addition, Falvey served on the core response teams during the BP Oil Spill and Hurricane Sandy, and led community outreach and engagement in the New England region for several environmental cleanup projects including those in New Bedford, South Weymouth, and the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
