What do you do?
Hi I'm Emily Mack. I'm excited to be coming on board as Grace Place's new social worker! I'm coming from a social work position at a local advocacy and resource organization that supports people with disabilities and their families. I look forward to supporting women in the place they call home. I love building connections and helping people reach their goals.
What inspired you to do the work you do?
I've been working in the aging and disability field for 8 years. I have my bachelors in social work and am currently pursing my Masters degree. The disability field has always held a place in my heart, but my inspiration for working at Grace Place came from volunteering when Grace Place one opened. Everyone I have met has been amazing, and I'm excited to be around such resilient and strong women.
