In Recognition of Your Commitment, Leadership, and Potential

Ms. Moseley is working towards her Masters degree in Social Work at the University of Kentucky. Emily is a Research Assistant on the UCEDD Core at the HumanDevelopment Institute (HDI). This year, she received the 2020 Kevin Burberry Student Award, given to an HDI trainee who best exemplifies leadership and advocacy in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. Her accomplishments truly reflect direct, sustained and passionate advocacy for children and youth with developmental disabilities, which is the essential focus in AUCD's Rudigier Award.

Emily is now in her second year as an HDI Research Assistant for our UCEDD Core Grant. In her research assistantship, she has been able to apply a number of the skills that she developed as a small business owner (photography, digital storytelling, documentary production) in the service of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
