Emily completed her undergraduate degree in Public Policy at Brown University before working abroad with Grassroot Soccer in Zambia and then across sub-Saharan Africa with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. She then went on to earn her master’s in Public Health with a focus on Health Promotion from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine with the dream of pursing community-based medicine. To that goal, Emily attended medical school at Tufts University, and immediately found a passion for social justice and advocacy. While at Tufts, she was a member of the Service Scholars Program, completed a Schweitzer Fellowship on group approaches to substance use recovery, founded the Addiction Medicine Interest Group, served as a reproductive health counselor with Tufts’ free clinic, and was a committed volunteer on an LGBQ/T partner abuse hotline. Her interests include practice-based advocacy and harm reduction. When not on the wards or in clinic, Emily enjoys playing with her goofy pup, exploring Boston’s restaurant scene, and running along South Boston’s waterfront.
