About Me

Full resume available upon request or view my profile on LinkedIn

Drawing on nearly a decade of social justice research, education and community organizing, Emily supports a variety of audiences through education and cultural competency trainings. Her commitment to social justice began as a teen in the Minneapolis suburbs and has continued through her connection to a diverse community of organizers, educators and social workers in New York City. Emily received her masters degree from Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College where she concentrated her studies in Community Organization, Planning and Development. While there she also served as Co-President of the Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GASA). GASA, along with other grad student alliances, coordinated conferences for current social work students on various social justice topics that often were left out of the classroom. Through positions held at Gay Men's Health Crisis, Queers for Economic Justice, Planned Parenthood of NYC, Undoing Racism Internship Prject, and the Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, she has honed her interactive facilitation skills and maintained working relationships with social service agencies across the city.

  • Empowering transgender and gender non-conforming youth in schools/organizations
