Emily started with Harry Meyering as a part time Direct Support Professional while going to school at Mankato State University for Elementary Education. Once she started at Harry’s, she felt that this was what she was supposed to be doing. After graduating, Emily ventured on to other Human Service jobs that never gave her the satisfaction that she had while she was working at Harry Meyering. Several years ago, this connection brought her back to Harry Meyering, and Emily continues to use her 17 years of experience to help others every day.

She looks at it each day and tries to live out what it reminds her to do. “Rules for Today: A little more laughter. A little less worry. A little more kindness. A little less hurry.
