Program Director – The Help Group: Sherman Oaks, CA

Emily Werman

Emily Werman began volunteering with ACEing Autism at The Help Group in 2011 when she was a student at The Help group. She is now a teacher at The Help Group and in 2018 she took on a larger leadership role to become one of the amazing Program Directors at The Help Group in Sherman Oaks, CA. Being an educator in the field of special education and being able to bring ACEing Autism to the school has been been truly gratifying experience for Emily. ACEing autism not only helps her students connect with physical fitness but also to learn and grow in many important areas including social and emotional skills. She is an amazing tennis player herself and is currently pursuing her master’s degree at Cal Lutheran. This year, Emily won our First Annual ACEing Essay Contest to win a trip to the US Open!
