Emily Hayes

Front Desk Receptionist

Being a stay-at-home mother of three and military wife, since 1999, has been rewarding and special.  I have enjoyed being able to be a stable presence in my children’s lives all those years.  Now that they are older and depend on me less, I decided it was time for me.  I put myself through school, earning an associate’s in Health Care Administration and a bachelor’s degree in Human Services.  Longing to find my place in the work force, I was blessed to become an AASL team member.  I enjoy getting to know our families here at AASL and being a part of a team that is dedicated to making a difference.  Through my valuable role at the front desk, in both speaking to and interacting with our clients and families on a daily basis, I get the pleasure of being of service to their needs and supporting them to answer any immediate questions, collect pertinent information, and help them as they get ready to work with our amazing therapists!  Be on the lookout for fun Disney additions by the check-in window when you come into the office!   In my spare time, you will find my OHANA and I making memories at Disney World!
