Emily grew up nannying for her two cousins with Down Syndrome and learned about pediatric therapy at a young age through her time with them. Her interest in sports and fitness, combined with her passion for children with special needs, led her to pursue a career as a PT.
Emily trained at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA), treating neonates and children of all ages who had experienced traumatic injuries and surgeries. Her doctoral research was on torticollis and its effects on early infant and later childhood developmental stages. She is certified in Integrated Listening Systems (iLS) and has received continuing education in Kinesio taping, NICU therapeutic interventions, Torticollis and Movement, and Positioning during Play. She loves being able to help families make the most of their time together by using physical therapy to make their day-to-day and leisure activities possible.
Emily grew up in nearby Suwanee, but she has traveled abroad with other therapists and nurses to provide healthcare and therapy services to underserved communities in Belize. An avid runner, she enjoys running 5K and 10K races to support a variety of causes and helping her family and friends with their fitness goals, including offering her PT skills to assist with injury recovery. She spends her free time traveling, camping, kayaking, hiking, and skiing with her husband, family, and friends.
