Emily joined the Saturday Academy team in 2019. Emily grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and attended college at Shepherd University where she majored in Graphic Design. After graduation, Emily moved to Denver to work in the marketing department as lead designer and marketing assistant at a foodservice design consulting firm for two years before moving to Portland.
Emily has always had a passion for higher education and learning, especially in the art, design, and computer science and coding fields. She is looking towards obtaining her masters to teach design at a university level in the future. In her free time, Emily can be found gaming (her favorites being the Dark Souls games), keep her Etsy shop up-to-date, or delving into cooking and baking. Although a newbie to the Pacific Northwest, she has brought her love of hiking with her and a constant search for the trendiest restaurants.
