We’re pleased to announce that Volunteer Intern Coordinator Emily Smith has been accepted to this year’s Nonprofit Emerging Leaders Academy (NELA)!
Emily manages all aspects of FamilyWise’s robust intern program, primarily recruiting and coaching undergraduates working towards degrees in Human Services and Family Social Science. Before joining FamilyWise in 2019, she was AmeriCorps VISTA Leader at Minnesota Literacy Council. As the right-hand person to VISTA’s busy National Service Director, Emily gained a breadth of skills not normally learned in an entry-level position.
Emily graduated from University of Pittsburgh with a dual degree in both Sociology and Anthropology and a minor in Administration of Justice. From Pennsylvania, she’s excited to get to know other nonprofits and meet NELA members. In her spare time, Emily can be found reading at least three memoirs or thrillers at a time or slinging burgers and beer at Red Cow.
Emily’s Top 5 Strengths are: Learner, Harmony, Input, Discipline, Includer
