2021 is bringing many great changes to HTS, including new team members. HTS is delighted to introduce Emily Downs, DNP, RN, who joins the team as a Project Specialist. HTS had the absolute pleasure of meeting and working with Emily while HTS was engaged with Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.

Emily began her nursing journey at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. From there, Emily worked as a registered nurse in the Pediatric MedSurg Unit at Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville. Emily decided to continue down the educational path and she completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice in Nurse Executive and Leadership Innovations at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing in Charleston, South Carolina.
With the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, Emily has worked as an Inpatient Pediatric Acute Care Nurse and she is currently a Nurse Manager for two Pediatric Acute Care Units. While working with HTS at MUSC, Emily thoroughly enjoyed developing clinical workflows.

Outside of her clinical service, Emily loves to spend as much time as possible boating, eating, and drinking around Charleston. Emily is engaged and will be married this September in Cashiers, North Carolina. Emily and her fiancé have a French bulldog named Louis and she can proudly say she owns more French bulldog décor than you or I.

HTS is elated to have Emily on board with our team. Welcome to HTS, Emily!
