Emily’s love of nature is rooted in the idea that outdoor experiences happen in both small, local green spaces and in the vast wilds of our National Park System. Now calling the mountains of North Carolina home, Emily is a Maryland native who spent her childhood summers roaming the mountains and lakeshores of New Hampshire and Maine. Emily received a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont, with a minor in Geography. Emily has worked as an environmental educator in Vermont and Maryland and has taught in classroom, outdoor, and museum settings.

Emily currently works as the Youth Programs Manager for the National Park Trust. Emily works with approximately 35 schools in California, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Washington, DC. Emily has also overseen the expansion of the Buddy Bison Youth Leadership Program and is stewarding the National Park Trust College Program. She manages the Kids to Parks Day National School Grants Program and contributes to monthly National Park Trust newsletters and social media.
