Along with her education, Emily has worked in the mental health field for the past 3.5 years working with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder. Emily’s professional interests are navigating interpersonal relationships, LGBTQ+ identities, racial and social injustices, holistic wellness, and mental health challenges associated with reproductive health.
