Emily grew up in the Fredericksburg area of Virginia, and she visited Shenandoah National Park every summer since she was young, making national parks and the importance of outdoor spaces near and dear to her heart.
Emily is a current student at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. She is pursuing a degree in Environmental and Sustainability Studies with a concentration in Wildlife Ecology. She will graduate in May of 2021 after completing a semester at the Smithsonian- Mason School of Conservation at Front Royal.
As the Communications Intern, she focuses on creating and developing a cohesive online presence for the National Park Trust. This includes social media, graphics, and video editing to promote the story of the Park Trust and the work that we do!
