Emily started her career at Fusion Academy in 2013 as the Director of Student Development at Fusion Academy Woodbury. Emily is thrilled to now be a part of the Fusion Academy Fairfield team and is excited to bring the one-on-one model of education to our current and future students.
Emily has earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Child Study from The University of St. Josephs in West Hartford, CT in 2007. It was in her senior year that she realized how much she truly appreciated the one-on-one interaction she had with students during a counseling internship. This inspired Emily to pursue a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Long Island University, from which she graduated in 2010 with her New York State Certification in School Counseling. She is also now a Certified School Counselor in Connecticut. Emily has had experience working at the elementary level, high school level, and in higher education as a Student Advisor and Admission Counselor.
In her spare time Emily loves to cook and aspires to start her own food blog! She also loves the traveling, photography, the outdoors, hiking, beaching, and relaxing at home with her husband and two dogs, Milo & Pepper.
Wacky Fact: Emily loves birds! She’s a self-proclaimed “bird-nerd.” She will always be pointing them out and then running to her National Audubon Society book to identify them.
