As Intake Coordinator, Emily welcomes clients and their families, completes personal and medical histories, and goes out of her way to help them feel at home. When you’re new to Desert Rose, you couldn’t be in better hands.
Emily is also our “Jack of all trades.” She floats all over the center doing multiple things at once – answering phones, building desks, decorating, and cutting deals on OfferUp. Her work ethic, free spirit and infectious personality permeate her work and interactions.
After serving as our women’s PHP house manager, Emily transferred to the Desert Rose headquarters and trained as Intake Coordinator. “Clients aren’t numbers walking through the door – Desert Rose really cares,” Emily says. “I’ve watched this company bend over backwards for clients and shower them with grace.”
Once a deckhand on a yacht, Emily is now pursuing her master’s degree in mental health and addictions counseling at Palm Beach Atlantic University. A gifted artist, she is excited to use her skills to help facilitate future outreach for the company through art and recovery.
