Staff Spotlight, Brittany Davis

TEP: Tell us about yourself!

Brittany: I am the Site Director at the Cleveland outpatient site. Prior to accepting this role in October of 2018, I was the Program Coordinator for our Adolescent Intensive Programming for about 9 years. I will always have a special place in my heart for adolescent treatment and the family-based treatment model. I started at The Cleveland Center for Eating Disorders as a student in 2009 and have enjoyed watching our organization grow tremendously since that time.

TEP: Tell us about yourself!

Sharon: I’m 49 (I feel 12. . .) and happily married for 16 years to my wonderful husband Eric. We have two grown daughters, Allix and Liz. I’m an animal lover and have three dogs and one cat (Jack, Wilson, Shorty, and Shelby). I’ve lived in Spokane since I was a little girl. We enjoy camping, boating, and 4-wheeling at our property at Lake Roosevelt. I also love to spend time running, planting flowers, reading, and hiking with my dogs.

Staff Spotlight, Sarah Hodder

Staff Spotlight: Sarah Hodder

TEP: Tell us about yourself!

Sarah: Hi, I’m Sarah! I was born and raised in Minnesota and currently live in the Twin Cities with my husband David and two dogs, Jones and Fiona, who are the sweetest pups in the Midwest (according to me). I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls with my Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts and though I still hold art very near and dear to my heart, I have found a TON of joy in working with people in my Human Resources roles. When I’m not recruiting awesome candidates for The Emily Program, I enjoy camping, hiking, gardening, browsing Reddit on my phone, and of course, binge-watching shows on Netflix.

TEP: What’s the one thing you want people to know about The Emily Program?

Sarah: Working for The Emily Program has been such an eye-opening experience–the amount of knowledge, passion, and empathy that our staff possesses amazes me daily! Though I don’t work directly with clients, I feel they are in the best hands through their journey knowing what I know about the people that work here. The TEP staff are my heroes!

Staff Spotlight, Julia Yarkoni

Julia Yarkoni Staff Spotlight

TEP: Hi Julia! Can you introduce yourself?

Julia: My name is Dr. Julia Yarkoni and I am the medical physician at the Cleveland Outpatient site, as well as the supervising physician at the Cleveland Residential site. Outside of The Emily Program, I am a proud wife and mother to two young sons. 

TEP: Why did you choose to work for The Emily Program?

Julia: I chose to work at The Emily Program for two main reasons. One is that when I became a doctor, I intended to go overseas in order to serve unrecognized international need but when that plan changed, my prayer was to serve unrecognized needs in the United States. That prayer was answered when I got accepted to work for The Emily Program. The medical community at large does not do enough recognition of eating disorders and I hope to change that—starting with myself. The second main reason is I highly value the work-life balance that The Emily Program promotes and with my husband currently being a full-time student, the flexibility of my schedule allows me to be there for my husband and children.
