Get to Know CCNY – Emily Rader

News, Our Staff

Knee SocksWe want you to know our staff like we know each other!  This week we asked Emily Rader, Program Analyst 7 Questions.  Here is what she has to say

What do you like to do in your spare time? Attend music shows, travel, dance/sing along to different music, read, love on my pets, watch Netflix/Amazon Prime (Orphan Black is the best show for all the nerd/sci-fi fans!!!).

What inspires you? Nature. Mountains. Travel.

Why is CCNY’s mission important to you? I believe in data-informed decision making for policy development and program improvement. I wanted to work for an organization that shared these same values and that partnered with community service agencies to best serve clients and improve the community.

Who is a hero of yours? My grandma, Janet. She always knows how to make me smile.

What’s something quirky about you? I love wearing knee-high socks that, most of the time do not match. I currently have more photos on my phone of my cats (Gaston and Colette) than I do of any one person.

What’s in your coffee? I do not drink a lot of coffee and prefer tea to coffee. The perfect tea mixture is Lipton iced tea with sweet-n-low (2 packs), or Gold Peak extra sweet tea.

I will never be seen without….. My phone.

Wanna chat with Emily, you know she’ll have her phone with her…..she can be reached via:
