Emily Wakefield, MSW
Emily joined NWPC in September of 2020 as their first care coordinator. She is excited to be a part of a team helping children and families grow. Born in Kentucky, Emily moved to the Pacific Northwest as a child, where she quickly found a second home on the soccer field, playing for school and rec teams through high school and college. From a young age, she also enjoyed volunteering with children and senior citizens.
Emily is passionate about children becoming lifelong learners, about their families having the resources to foster this growth and about fostering an attitude of connection between generations.
When not at work, Emily enjoys hiking, camping or exploring, often with her dogs — Gracie, a tiny but mighty pound puppy, and Fergus, a large, goofy goldendoodle who lives to play ball. She also loves to read, cook, garden and travel.
