Emily is a TRUE advisor and has enrolled in the Sustainability & Development Professional MasterTrack from University of Michigan. Prior to working for non-profit, Emily spent years in the healthcare field providing in-home elder care. She has worked in formal education settings including work with neurodivergent individuals and early childhood programs.

Emily is planning a wedding, and working on the restoration of a historic home. She is open to advice on both!
After a decade in the education field, Emily’s education ethos has become that acquiring knowledge is useless if it isn’t shared. The community should be given bountiful and easily navigable resources to become caretakers of the planet.
