Emily K. Anderson
Director of Social Services
Emily has been with the Walker Methodist family for over 13 years and held various positions with us. She attended St. Cloud State University where she obtained her Bachelors Degree. Her “ah-ha” moment for choosing senior living came when she worked with adults in healthcare at her first job. This job made her feel like healthcare was her niche.
As the Director of Social Services, Emily supports the social services department and assists staff with difficult situation and provides possible solutions. She also meets with residents and attends meetings. She’s known to remain calm and collected in tense situations, and is best as solving complicated problems that arise during discharge.
Personally, Emily loves to spend time with family and friends. She also loves anything British (except for their weather), and hopes to retire there someday. She also enjoys anything that has to do with nature and wildlife, and is known to be a bit of a “bird nerd” due to her ability to identify most birds of Minnesota. She enjoys hiking with her family and listening to music. She met her husband Brad here at the Health Center in 2004, and they were married in 2007. They have a four-year-old son named Bryce and a two-year-old daughter named Ellie.
In her spare time, Emily enjoys volunteering for Feed my Starving Children and at her church. She also loves to take pictures and draw when she has the time.
