ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Speaker Emily Levine first became involved with the Autism Society when her son was diagnosed with autism in 1991 and has been paying it forward ever since.
Emily became the first full-time employee of the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin in 2006, and now as Executive Director supervises a staff of seven, which provide help and support to over 5000 people yearly. She is always looking for ways to increase inclusive opportunities for all which has led her to start a yearly program to teach bike riding, organizing the Milwaukee Urban Autism Summit, and delivering an air travel rehearsal program at Mitchell International Airport. Committed to training for police officers, Emily works closely with the Milwaukee Police Department and NAMI of Southeast Wisconsin.
