Emily Loveland, MSW

With over seven years of experience in government, working for a social service agency, Emily Loveland, MSW has developed a keen interest in public policy interpretations and implementation and it’s impact on social justice and social welfare policy. Working with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program in particular has brought to light how food insecurity impacts a number of other socioeconomic factors, such as employment, housing, and education. Recognizing that policy is an overarching regulation meant to serve as many as possible while also applying the person-in-environment perspective, Emily seeks to use research to discover gaps in policies and programs and how they disproportionately impact underserved communities and individuals. Coming from a human rights perspective, Emily strives to view the link between food insecurity and health outcomes from both a micro and macro perspective, evaluating how the intersection of these two factors as they impact policies, communities, and individuals.
