Getting to know Our all stars
Each month we want to focus on one of our outstanding team members. This month we are focusing on Emily Breeden, a server from our Downtown location. Please take a few moments to get to know Emily.
Tell us about your day job
I work for a program called Healthy Families. Healthy Families is a voluntary home visitation program designed to reduce child abuse and neglect, childhood health problems and juvenile delinquency through a variety of services, including child development, access to health care and parent education. My title is a Family Support Specialist and my day to day can be very different each week. I am usually driving all over Marion County to meet with those families on my caseload to have home visits. During a typical home visit I work with the family and their baby on child development and whatever other stressors they may be dealing with.
How long have you been at this job?
I have worked for Healthy Families since January of 2014.
What made you want to do this type of work?
I LOVE people and have always known that whatever I chose as a career it would involve helping people. I have a special place in my heart for children and abuse prevention so this career was a pretty perfect fit.
Where do you volunteer?
I volunteer for a program called Back on My Feet. BoMF is an organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real changes in their lives. I run with BoMF on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 5:45 a.m. I LOVE running with BoMF and have met so many amazing people through this program. I recently ran the Carmel Half Marathon with this group on 4/18 and will be running another on 5/2.
Tell us a little about your family
My Parents are by far my biggest supporters/cheerleaders in everything I do! I would not be where I am today without them.
What do you like about working at Scotty's?
I love that even though Scotty’s is a different atmosphere I am still working in a people helping position. It is nice to be able to do this in a more relaxed environment where I’m almost always laughing.
What are you future plans?
I would love to go back to school to get my Masters in either Social Work or Non-Profit Management but I haven’t quite decided between the two.
Other than volunteering, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to be outside, taking pictures, going to concerts, or spending time with my boyfriend and puppy.
