Emily S. Wheeler

Development Associate

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.  In 2015, she became a member of the Helping Hands Monkey Helpers family when she accepted a permanent role in the Development office.
 
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.
