Meet My Little Waiting Room’s Summer Intern Emily Merkel

We are thrilled to welcome Emily Merkel as our very first My Little Waiting Room summer intern! Emily received a competitive $2,000 grant from Barnard Alumni Association to underwrite her work for My Little Waiting Room this summer.

Emily is a graduate of St. Mary’s Academy High School in Portland, Oregon. She has just completed her third undergraduate year of studies at Barnard College in New York City. She brings a background in pre-med and public health experience, including public health volunteer work in India, to our organization.

She will be a great help as we get our organization and our first location up and running!
