Meet Our Parent Mentors

Emily P.

Emily is a mentor for parents caring for a child with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. She also offers mentorship related to urology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and neurology care services.

I am the mother of a beautiful girl with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. I’m so lucky to be Ellie's guide in life! My experiences with the disability world in Idaho have flourished through medical, community, and state programs that have truly helped Ellie and so many others. It’s not about what she can’t do, but rather about all that she can accomplish. 

Some of my areas of experience are wheelchair accessibility, special education, navigating multiple specialists and therapies, the Infant Toddler Program, and training for the transition into adulthood. I’m happy to help anyone along this great adventure!

You are not alone. 

Caring for a child with complex medical needs can be complicated and overwhelming. Support from someone navigating similar challenges can make all the difference.
