Therapeutic Program Coordinator

Emily Nelsen, CTRS Therapeutic Program Coordinator

NCTRC #: 66218

Emily was an intern with EXPAND in the winter of 2015 while completing her degree in Recreational Therapy at Indiana University. After graduating and obtaining her certification, Emily worked to provide therapeutic recreation opportunities to people who have multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injuries while staying connected with EXPAND. She runs aquatics programs, Camp Amico and Amico+, and various other programs!

Emily knew from a young age that her passion was helping people with disabilities find meaning and purpose to nourish quality of life. Emily’s wide range of recreation and leisure interests including running, dancing, hiking, creative projects, and cooking inspire her to share them with others!

“I can’t believe this is my job! I get to recreate with some of the coolest people I know and call it ‘work’!”
