Emma joined the Brazelton Touchpoints Center (BTC) in 2019 as a Research Coordinator on the Research and Evaluation Team. She has been working with children and families for over nine years in the areas of education, research, and advocacy.

Her work at BTC is focused on the evaluation of early childhood programming, professional development for early childhood providers, supporting child wellness in indigenous communities, childcare subsidy policies, and collaborating with BTC’s Professional Development team to evaluate virtual offerings.

Emma has worked directly with young children and their families in early childhood classrooms as a Head Start teacher in Mesa, AZ, and as the Assistant Director of an Early Childhood Education Center in Boston, MA. In graduate school, she gained experience working on research projects related to enrollment and family engagement in public preschool programs and contributed to a needs-based assessment for Massachusetts Family Networks. Emma also has experience supporting advocacy initiatives in Massachusetts related to infant and early childhood mental health, trauma-informed care, family strengthening, and child welfare and juvenile justice reform.
