Rhode Island state Representative Deb Ruggiero never thought that a simple lunch meeting would become a seminal moment in her career. On a summer day in 2019 she met fellow public servant Joe O’Brien, former mayor of Worcester, at an outdoor café in Jamestown, RI. O’Brien wanted to talk to her about a new master’s program developed by Clark University, which he was directing. His advocacy convinced her to enroll in the new program. The rest, as they say, is history.
