Emily Flavin-

Social Media Coordinator

Emily is a recently graduated biologist living in the greater Boston area of Massachusetts. She works in pharmaceuticals making medicine for people with genetic disorders. She grew up around animals her whole life and has been involved in different volunteering roles in shelters throughout college.


Growing up, Emily had multiple cats and a golden retriever named Bailey. She loved those pets greatly, and knew that whatever career she ended up in, she wanted to always have animals be part of her life. Emily recently adopted a lab/shepherd mix puppy and named her Cider, who's favorite thing to do right now is chew on slippers. 


Emily has experience working with dog owners specifically through undergraduate work increasing the amount of leashed dogs in Wellington, New Zealand in an effort to protect wildlife. She is looking forward to getting involved with Ruff Haven, and hopes to help raise awareness for the organization's cause.
