As a graduate of UNCW, Emilee was introduced to paws4people during her time as a student in the SDTP. There, she learned how much a Service Dog could change a person’s life. Having struggled with anxiety most of her life, Emilee had accepted that the world would be a stressful place, but her mindset changed when she continued to learn the ways in which a dog could benefit their client. Emilee believes an Assistance Dog will give her the confidence she was missing to explore the world around her, and live a more fulfilling life.
