Masters of Arts in Counseling and Art Therapy, Marylhurst University
Emily began at The College School in 2018 as a substitute teacher. As a native of St. Louis, she previously taught art in four schools in East St. Louis and North St. Louis for Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. This experienced helped to spark her interest in helping children to find their voice through a variety of media as well as using themes through a variety of subjects. She worked as a support therapist working with children on the autism spectrum before attending graduate school. The time Emily spent working as a therapist at a child and adolescent hospital in Salem, Oregon, and her time as a counselor in Illinois continued to help her develop strategies on reaching children through a variety of media and languages, tying into the Reggio concept of 100 languages. She strives to help others find their voice and develop positive relationship with others, building confidence and independence. Even as a young child, Emily has always had a strong love of the outdoors, enjoying working in her herb garden, camping and hiking with her family. She is an avid baker and has recently taken up bee keeping. Emily lives in Webster Groves with her husband and two daughters, who attend TCS.
