Before she was a an IOP Coordinator for MERC and Providence, Emilie started her academic career studying hospitality, as she originally wanted to manage a country club, but switched tracks and received her undergraduate degree in counseling psychology. In 2016, Emilie earned her Master’s degree.
With clients, she likes to approach things with a holistic model that takes into account more than just the mental health space. “I try to impart that patients have to manage other aspects like their physical health and relationships as part of overall wellness.” She also encourages clients to live an active lifestyle.
Outside of work, Emilie enjoys spending time outdoors, particularly at the beach during the warmer months. She also likes to spend time with her dogs.
