Emily grew up in Gloucester Massachusetts and has been in Human Services for the past decade with a focus on Developmental Disabilities.
Prior to joining the Communitas, Emily was a Residential Program Director. She has worked with children as young as two, older adults, and all phases of life in between. She is experienced in various settings including community-based, in-home, ABA centers, Special Education focused schools, group homes, and adult day programs.
Emily is passionate about her work and has worked her way up through different positions, starting as direct support. She feels this is a strength she brings to the team and allows her to better relate to and support her staff.
In addition to her work at Communitas, Emily enjoys volunteering for organizations that support and provide experiences for people with developmental disabilities. One of her favorites to be a part of is Miss Amazing Inc., which is a national self-esteem movement for girls and women with disabilities.
