Thesis/Practicum: Practicum Report entitled, “Building Long-term Supportive Housing for Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence.”

Holds an undergraduate degree in Religion from Capital University. Emily completed her Practicum at Dina’s Dwellings, a long-term residence facility established in New Brunswick to assist women survivors of domestic violence. Emily completed her Practicum during the first year when Dina’s Dwellings became operational. Her Practicum work allowed Emily to focus on the perspectives of female survivors residing in Dina’s Dwellings, particularly how women survivors of DV expressed what the space of Dina’s Dwellings meant to them as they moved through their journeys of healing.
