Emily began her career with the Carolina College Advising Corps; a college access program dedicated to increasing the number of first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented high school students entering and completing higher education in North Carolina. A product of the public education system herself, Emily is a two-time graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, most recently earning a Master of Social Work in Community, Management, and Policy Practice in 2020. 

Since graduating, Emily has worked in nonprofit operations and has held roles with Arabella Advisors, the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and the Community Empowerment Fund. Emily strives to be an abolitionist social worker and is committed to a lifetime of justice work and community care. Outside of work, Emily enjoys exploring her West Seattle neighborhood, hiking, and spending time with her spouse and very spoiled rescued racing greyhound, Ginny.
