Emma Parker joined YFC in May 2022 as an undergraduate assistant, eager to learn more about the counseling world. After graduating from Lake Forest College in December 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish, she joined YFC full-time as the Intake Coordinator.
Emma has an interest in becoming a therapist, so her current position managing intake allows her to garner some clinical experience while also learning about the inner workings of a counseling practice. Emma loves her job because she interacts with clients and is the “front line” for YFC--an important and impactful role.
Emma plans to return to school to obtain a master's in social work so she can become a therapist. In the meantime, she is grateful to be a part of the YFC team and mission in providing counseling to individuals from all walks of life. Outside of work Emma loves listening to her favorite K-pop artists.
