Christy has served as the Social Media Manager for the New England Patriots since 2009. She started with the Patriots as in intern for the 2007 season, before being employed full-time once she graduated BU. The media relations department of the Patriots handles any interviews with the players and coaches from all media, sets up community events with members of the team, among other responsibilities. Prior to Christy working full-time in Foxboro, the position of Social Media Manager did not exist. She is responsible for sharing happenings for the Patriots (practices, interviews, events, etc.) through the various social media outputs that the organization has. The Jack Falla Speaker Series honors the late, great Jack Falla, who famously held class at 8 a.m. to ensure the enrollment of only dedicated students. Jack sadly passed away five years ago, but we honor his memory by continuing his genuine devotion to students. Jack always recruited fantastic guest speakers, often COM alumni, for his classes, ones that formed lasting memories and connections. Jack Falla Speaker Series events are free and open to the BU community. For questions, contact Assistant Dean Micha Sabovik - msabovik@bu.edu.
