Operations and Program Assistant
Emer Valdez recently joined the Thomas and Jeanne Elmezzi Private Foundation as its Operations and Program Assistant. Originally from Massachusetts, Emer has lived and studied in New York City for the past five years. Emer graduated from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study where she focused predominantly on Education, Community and Health Policy with a minor in Global and Urban Education Studies.
Prior to joining the Elmezzi team, Emer interned at a few NYC non-profits, primarily concentrating on community growth and health education, as well as teaching health classes in NYC high schools. She plans on using her passion for youth development and access to education and healthcare, as well as her interest in non-profit management, to enrich her experience with the Elmezzi team and to continue to learn and grow in the field.
