Hello, my name is Emily Klase. I grew up in Sunbury, PA, and now live in Middleburg, PA. I have nearly 10 years of background working with Behavioral and Mental Health, working with youth and adults (ages ranging from 2-30 years). I have worked in both a residential hospital and clinic-based settings. I am looking forward to expanding my horizons and working within the Union County communities more. As a young child, I was part of the Big Brother Big Sister program growing up. I had participated in both site based at my elementary school (from approximately 2004-2005) then continued to community based (from 2005 to roughly 2008). I actually am still in contact with two of my former Bigs today from time to time. I am excited to hopefully make amazing matches that last a lifetime for others!
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, my dogs, and my friends. I enjoy being outdoors, listening to music, and crafting. I love going to local sporting events and supporting the local school sports. I look forward to expanding my experiences and making a difference within Big Brothers Big Sisters.
