Dr. Rebecca French Named Director of Resilience at CT DOH

Many of you had the opportunity to meet and get to know Dr. Rebecca French over the last 3 years while she was the Director of Community Engagement at CIRCA.  In April, Dr. French left CIRCA for a new job as the Director of a large and important program at the CT Dept. of Housing. She will be responsible for the execution of a 54 million dollar project to protect Bridgeport from flooding while enhancing the city’s economic development opportunities. This is an important demonstration project for the State and is a great professional opportunity for her. Dr. French has been an essential part of the growth and the successes CIRCA has achieved, and we wish her well as CIRCA looks forward to continuing our partnership with her in this new role.
