What Brought Emily to Music Therapy?
“Music has always been a part of my life, from playing violin, flute, and a little piano when I was a child, to singing in choirs all the way through college, to listening to my mom play the piano. When I was looking at different careers in high school, I knew I wanted to do something with music and I knew I wanted to help people like my brother, who has high functioning Autism and anxiety. I was able to job shadow a few Music Therapists in my area and fell in love immediately. When I was applying for college, I found Shenandoah University, which was a perfect fit for me and had exactly what I was looking for in a university. After that, the rest was history. I have loved music therapy since the moment I discovered it and I have and will continue to learn and grow in my musical and clinical skills so that I can provide the best services for my clients. I believe that each person can express themself through music and I’m excited to be a part of Infinity’s team!”
