Introducing Lori's Hands' 2018 - 2019 Graduate Assistant: Emily Benoit

My name is Emily Benoit and I am the Lori’s Hands Graduate Assistant for the 2018-2019 academic year. I am a Massachusetts native and received my Bachelor’s Degree in communication disorders and psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. (Yes, I am a Patriots fan!) I am in the first year of my Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Delaware. I have experience working with children who have autism, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and the elderly population.

Over the next several months, I will be sharing with you stories from Lori’s Hands clients and volunteers. I will be blogging about everything from what it’s like for community members and volunteers to be involved with Lori’s Hands to their favorite holiday traditions and recipes. I love hearing people’s life stories and experiences, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you.

If you have a topic or story you’d like to see featured on the blog, comment below or email me at I hope to hear from you!
