"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

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.
