Emily became our Citizenship Program Manager in 2018 after serving for a year and a half as an AmeriCorps member in the Citizenship Program. She grew up on Massachusetts’ North Shore and has a B.A. in Anthropology/African Studies and Global Studies from Saint Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. Her thesis focused on how global politics, economy and culture intersect to create conditions that produce forced migration. She completed the 40-hour immigration law training run by MIRA in September 2018. When she’s not helping turn green-card holders into U.S. citizens, she organizes learning opportunities for the whole staff, leads impassioned discussions, and laughs. She’s also a “safewalk” volunteer with the MSPCA and a student/teacher of yoga at O2 Somerville.
