After purchasing her home, Regina immediately attended a Waverly neighborhood association meeting to learn more about her new community, and became a board member and officer within her first year of membership.

In 2005 Regina volunteered to work on the community-built playground and was one of many key leaders to organize maintenance of the playground every year after the build. She participated in community oriented art projects that promoted a sense of place and neighborhood identity, coordinated community clean-ups and National Night Out events, began community safety walks and restarted the quarterly association newsletter.

Regina worked closely with community organizations, faith partners and elected officials to advocate for construction funding to expand the Waverly Elementary/Middle School and additional focused on building stronger school curriculum. To enhance her leadership ability, Regina received training and attended workshops in the areas of housing code violations, community organizing and outreach, emergency response, gangs, and community mediation.

In 2015, Regina and her Waverly neighbors gathered the community together to declare to City Government that “crime is a public health crisis” when two children were shot on her street, one fatally, within a year of one another.

Regina currently works for Strong City Baltimore as the Director of the Adult Learning Center where she has been since 2015.
