Hi, my name is Emily Harris and I am a Disability Advocate at SAIL, the Disability Network of the U.P. I’m from a small town in downstate Michigan but relocated to Marquette to attend NMU. It was not my original intention to stay, but I have built my life up here and have fallen in love with Lake Superior and all Marquette has to offer!
I graduated from NMU, majoring in Social Work and Human Behavior. I have experience working in case management, direct care work, and employment services. I have worked one-on-one with individuals with disabilities as well as those experiencing homelessness. I have always been passionate about helping people in any way I can, and I value respect and dignity above anything else.
In my free time, you can find me gardening, cooking, reading, or hammocking. But I am always down to cuddle up with my cat, Toby Jane, and watch a good scary movie at home!
