Emily is from Southeastern Ohio, where she was able to foster her love of the outdoors from a young age. Emily then attended the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in Environmental Studies and Political Science, along with obtaining a Certificate of Sustainability. During her time there, she was an intern for PennEnvironment and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. She was also involved in various sustainability projects during her coursework. For her senior sustainability capstone project, Emily was part of a group working to implement a sustainable brewery on the university’s campus.
Outside of the classroom, Emily enjoys spending her time hiking and playing with her dogs, running, kayaking, baking, and taking pictures. She is excited to spend the next few months in Colorado exploring the outdoors and learning about sustainability initiatives alongside the other interns!
