Emily Fagerholm joined the team at Friendship Place after graduating from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. She earned her BA in Communication Studies and Social Welfare & Justice - two of her biggest passions. While in undergrad, Emily gained a significant amount of experience in the non-profit sector through working and volunteering at numerous organizations in the Greater Milwaukee Area. She built upon these experiences by regularly doing service in New Orleans and working for Lutheran Social Services in the Urban Ministries department, where she developed programs to create social change and awareness in the community.
Although she is native to the Midwest, Emily is thrilled to be working for such a great organization in DC. On the weekends, you may find her wandering around one of the many museums in the city, or in the audience at a musical. Emily is loves reading, spending time with friends and family, and a hot cup of Starbucks coffee.
