We feel incredibly blessed to welcome Emily as the New Life director! She has been serving at the Center for about eight years in different roles: as side by side, on the board of directors and as our ultrasound nurse. We are thankful for her leadership and passion for our mission! Here is a little bit about Emily:
"I grew up in Esko, MN, and lived there until graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Superior with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college I was blessed with an amazing little boy who changed my life and solidified my relationship with Christ. A couple years later I met my husband, who lived in Hayward, WI, and did not want to move! I moved to Hayward in 2009 after we got married and did in-home care for a short time before opening up my own in-home daycare. I started volunteering at Northwoods New Life Resource Center (then called the Northwoods Pregnancy Resource Center) in 2010 helping with events and eventually became a peer-counselor and joined the Board of Directors. I was blessed to be able to stay home with our children but after five years decided to go back to school to be a nurse. I graduated from WITC-Ashland and work at a hospital in the OB department. As a Registered Nurse, I was able to be trained to perform limited ultrasounds at New Life, which I love doing because of my life story (ask me about it!). I am so excited to step into the Director role at New Life and to see where God takes this ministry!"
Join us welcoming Emily to her new role whenever you stop by the Center!!
