Emily S. Wheeler

Development Assistant

A native of Massachusetts, Emily graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Merrimack College in North Andover, MA and completed graduate studies in Economic and Social Development at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. After a few years working in local government (and a few years living in Guam) she decided to pursue a career in development.
In May 2014 Emily started volunteering as the Development Intern. She was excited to accept the position of Development Assistant and officially become a member of the Helping Hands family in 2015!
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, hiking, reading, and knitting. You can also find her enjoying city life here in Boston with her husband and cat.
