What you see below is the culmination of life lived, personal growth, journeys to dark places, and gems found hidden within the depths of me! I’m using this space to showcase my stories, thoughts, and book projects.
I am bilingual/bicultural mamá of two and pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist. I am an Oregon Board Certified and American Speech and Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) clinically competent clinician. I began my clinical career in 2009 working in early intervention and early childhood special education. Currently, I am a Clinical Assistant Professor/Supervisor.
In 2018, with my second child 8mo-old, I began reassessing my experience of motherhood as a repeat parent. My forthcoming memoir (out Feb 2023 by Demeter Press) is about my experiences with mothering, mental health and my identity.

HuffPost reporter Kelsey Borresen quoted Emily regarding her postpartum anxiety symptoms.
"It was like I’d turned into a puffer fish or a porcupine. One seemingly small move, comment or sound and — poof! — I’d prickle out and sting those around me with my words or a look. I had developed a negative reflex to everything and anything, and it was all-consuming. It controlled me."
