Emi Michalak joined the Hope House staff in October 2020. Emi graduated from Colorado Christian University with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences. Throughout college, she accumulated a wide variety of experiences working in food service at a nursing home, patient transport at a medical center, teaching horseback riding and coaching high school soccer. As a leader on her college soccer team for three years, Emi learned the importance of teamwork, communication and building trust in relationships, all of which she feels have prepared her well for her advisory role at Hope House. As a Residential Advisor, she is most excited about the opportunity to do life with teen moms and their children, and work alongside the rest of the staff to help teen moms reach their goals. Emi is a Texas native and enjoys playing soccer, horseback riding, skiing and snowboarding in her free time.
