Emma is a two-time alumna of Baylor University, who joined the Garland School of Social Work as an adjunct at the Houston campus in 2017. Emma returned to her hometown of Houston after completing her MSW and began working in psychiatric and emergency social work in hospital settings. Emma then transitioned to pediatric social work in a primary care setting as a part of a state-wide initiative to identify and reduce child abuse and neglect. Emma continued her social work practice as a clinician in an adolescent intensive outpatient program, combining her love for psychiatric crisis intervention and for medical social work, as a therapist for children with chronic illness and co-occurring mental health diagnoses.

During the pandemic, Emma also created a congregational pediatric telehealth program to support the mental health of children. Emma serves on the Harris County Child Fatality Review Team, as well as the Suicide Prevention sub-committee, working to create policy change to reduce preventable child deaths. Emma is a clinical social work supervisor and trains future therapists, and enjoys speaking at conferences on ethical supervision, preparatory empathy, and multidisciplinary integrated behavioral health care.

Emma lives in Houston with her husband, Zack and her 6 month old daughter, Lucy. Emma enjoys being active, cooking and spending time with her friends and family.
