As the MindFit Academic Enhancement GA, Emily supports the MindFit mission by mentoring students and tutors, maintaining the program's social media and recruiting new tutors.
Emily Stout graduated from West Virginia University in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology. She is now continuing her education in the Doctor of Audiology program at WVU. Emily chose this field of study because she finds it really rewarding to see someone’s quality of life improve when given access to sound. She is very excited to join the MindFit team because she is primarily interested in educational audiology. This branch of audiology involves providing hearing impaired students with a proper listening environment that is conducive for learning.
As a southern West Virginia native, Emily really appreciates all of the opportunities for adventure that this area provides. Some of her favorite outdoor activities include hiking, whitewater rafting, and zip-lining.
