Emily is the Program Analyst for Global Health at NACCHO, managing the Transforming Local Domestic Public Health Practice Through Global Health Exchange project. Her goal for this work is to encourage U.S. local health departments to understand the valuable perspective that global health programs can provide to domestic public health work.

In the summer of 2018, she was an ORISE Fellow at the Office of Global Research at the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID). She also served as a Global Epidemiology Intern at Peace Corps, helping to create the 2018 Health of the Volunteer Report.

Prior to starting her master’s program, Emily was a Senior Program Associate of Global Development Policy and Learning at InterAction in DC for two years, where she worked to increase data transparency within international development and humanitarian aid by mapping NGO projects around the world and managed the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) working group. Prior to InterAction, she worked for two years as a Senior Membership Associate of National and Strategic Accounts at The Advisory Board in DC.
