VITA Program Manager

Emily Petrie

Emily Petrie joined The Financial Clinic in October 2016 as the VITA Program Manager. She was a member of the Clinic’s tax season staff for the 2015-16 tax season and is thrilled to be able to turn her role as the in-house “tax nerd”full-time.

Emily is responsible for making tax season happen: from building relationships with sites and external partners, to hiring, training, and managing tax season staff and volunteers, to calculating exactly how many staples are needed at a given site.

Before joining the Clinic, Emily worked as a school administrator at Catholic schools in the South Bronx, where she built critical internal systems around enrollment, finances, and operations.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University with double majors in Social Policy and Legal Studies.

Outside of work, Emily is co-leader of a Girl Scout troop in East Harlem, active in the young adults leadership at her UU church, an avid cook/baker/canner, and an occasionally successful gardener.
