Emily was born and raised around Corpus Christi but has called Dallas home for the past several years. She studied Historical Studies and Gender Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas where she helped start the first inclusive campus ministry. She describes herself as a starter, but whether or not she is starting something new, she has always had a passion for learning. You will often times find her learning about people’s stories, reading a book, or doing something that will help her see a new perspective of the world. She is a huge geek and loves a great adventure every now and then.
