Hello, my name is Emily and I am 20 years old. I am a junior in college and studying Speech Language and Hearing Sciences. I plan on getting a doctorate in Audiology. I am one of eight children so I am very comfortable with children. I also have two dogs at home, so pets are not a problem. I spent last summer working at a seven week summer camp for children with disabilities. The children I worked with had been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida. I have experience with maneuvering both power and manual wheel chairs, administering a feeding through a g-tube, and doing basic exercises. I was assigned two campers who were under my 24 hour care for seven weeks. Prior to working at the camp for children with special needs, I worked at a day camp in the Chicago suburbs. I was a counselor for 4-6 year old girls. We did everyday summer activities where I also taught swimming lessons. If you would like to know more about me, I can answer any questions you have!
