“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

Emma has worked in the human services field since 2012 and joined Headway in February, 2016.  She interned at Headway during the 2014-2015 school year and is excited to return to the Day Treatment program. Her previous experience includes serving with AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA corps for 10 months and working as a social work intern in an elementary school.  "I help teens and families find ways to communicate and navigate difficult situations, and I plan to help give a voice to those who do not feel heard" she says.   

Emma is a huge hockey fan and enjoys both playing and watching the sport when she is not at work.
