University of Iowa

As the Assistant Director, Emily works on enhancing and supporting educational experiences for honors students through curriculum, experiential learning, academic advisement, and community development. Her research addresses twice -exceptional college students (gifted college students living with mental health issues) and how universities can better support these individuals through staff, faculty, advisement, and programming. 

Emily’s door is always open for students to visit with her about academics, experiential learning, and life in general. In her free time, she likes to walk her Maltese Poodle, Mr. Gatsby, practice yoga, read fiction, collect vinyl and play it too loud, and travel.
