Hello! Welcome to my Virtual Office. My name is Emily Dillon and I am a Psychiatric Social Worker at John Marshall High School. I received my Masters in Social Welfare at UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and have been with LAUSD for six years. I enjoy my work because I love connecting with students, families, and staff and working together to support our students and create healthy, thriving school communities. I am proud to be the mother of two amazing children. I love creating, crafting, and getting outside and into nature. On the weekends you can find me on the yoga mat or on a hiking trail. In the summers, I raise monarch butterflies and enjoy going on adventures with my family.



I am available for 30-minute scheduled phone or video appointments
