Emily’s philosophy of care is rooted in teamwork. She believes that when all teams share content, resources, and strategies, the patient is best served. Additionally, she is greatly influenced by the importance of language services within the medical field. As a bilingual provider, she is convinced that hearing a patient’s history in their own language is a powerful vehicle that helps create a bridge between patient and provider. Emily also believes that a patient is an integral part of any care team. By validating the patient’s symptoms and concerns, she contends, the patient is helped along in the healing process.
Outside of work, Emily is an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys hiking and exploring Rhode Island’s outdoor spaces with her family. She has hiked 46 high peaks in New York’s Adirondack Mountains and walks often through Rhode Island’s many parks and nature trails. In addition, she is an avid runner, having run the Newport Half Marathon during the past few years. She is also committed to environmental advocacy. Within her hometown community of Lincoln, Rhode Island, Emily serves as Conservation Commissioner where she works to restore and protect Lincoln’s natural areas, open spaces, wetlands and waterways.
