Emily grew up locally in Harris County, Georgia in a loving Christian home. After graduating high school, she attended the University of West Ga in Carrollton and obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in music. She lived in Atlanta for a few years before coming back home to the Columbus area. Emily has been actively involved with student ministries at her home church in Fortson, Ga for many years. Through her experience in student ministry, she felt God calling her to work more closely with youth aged kids and helping them find a way in life. With her background in psychology, she felt that CGA was an excellent opportunity to fulfill what God was asking her to do. Emily is an active member of the praise and worship team at her church, enjoys outdoor activities, the mountains, and spending time with her family.
