Emily recently moved to Colorado Springs from Boise, Idaho where she obtained her Bachelors of Elementary Education emphasizing in Literacy. After graduation, Emily joined the AmeriCorps-VISTA program which partners with local Non-profits to serve local community needs. Literacy has been a passion that is developing into a career for Emily. She is responsible for increasing funding, helping with special events, marketing, and recruitment at the Children’s Literacy Center. Emily has worked for the Boise State University literacy program, TRiO tutoring programs, and the private education sector.

As a recent transplant to the Springs, Emily is enjoying getting to know her new community through work and bicycling around downtown.
