Patrick Emery

Campus Coordinator

A native of the Cleveland suburbs, Patrick joined the Open Doors Academy team as Campus Coordinator in October 2021. After attending Chagrin Falls public schools, Patrick headed to Chicago where he graduated from Northwestern University gaining a Bachelors of Science in Education and Social Policy with a concentration in Learning and Organizational Change and a minor in United States History.

Alongside his studies, Patrick first explored his interest in the public and nonprofit sectors by working on various political campaigns where he developed a strong interest in relationship building and education. Finally, an opportunity to mentor similarly labeled middle school students with learning disabilities solidified his desire to join a nonprofit focused on youth education and development.

Patrick is so excited to contribute to Open Doors Academy’s mission while mentoring and teaching scholars. When not working, Patrick enjoys spending time socializing with family and friends, eating breakfast foods, listening to podcasts, and spending the summer months near water.
