Gwen Volmar moved to Cambridge 10 years ago while her husband was pursuing a PhD at Harvard, and has lived here since.
She is a first-time candidate. She was a delegate for her ward to last summer's Democratic convention.
She currently works as an assistant director in Harvard's Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships. Previously, she taught 5th grade, and worked with Human Rights Watch and Teachers Without Borders.
I’ve lost count of the number of friends who have had to leave Cambridge because it’s too expensive to live here.
I have never moved out of the 500 square-foot apartment I moved into when I was 22 because I can’t afford to.
