Emily completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Queen’s University in 2012. She then received her Masters of Science in Psychiatric Research with a specialization in Psychosis Studies from King’s College London, England in 2013. Upon completion of her graduate degree, she was offered a position as a research coordinator in Montreal, for an NIH funded project examining the differences in outcomes in first episode psychosis (FEP) patients in Canada and India. While working in Montreal Emily was fortunate enough to work not only as a researcher but also in a clinical capacity with FEP patients. It is through working with one of these patients, who had sustained multiple concussions prior to having her psychotic episode that Emily became interested in the link between concussions and mental illness.
Emily has been the program coordinator for the ICRP since 2016. She is responsible for ensuring current, accurate, documentation for all aspects of the program, assisting with strategic planning for the program developing and maintaining project plans and tracking deliverables.
