Emily was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She was born into a Jesus-loving family and a couple years later was joined by her younger brother. She started studying engineering at Texas A&M University (however don’t ask her to do math) where God transformed her heart and showed her the abundance of love He has for her. She felt a call from God to transfer to Concordia University of Texas where she received a bachelors’ in religious education and a DCE (Director of Christian Education) certification. During her time at Concordia, she met and fell in love with her now husband, Chad. They got married in August 2019 and soon after moved to the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where he works as a youth pastor at Crossway Church in Germantown, WI and she is the city specialist at LINC Milwaukee. She now gets to work with local leaders in Milwaukee to make their God given dreams a reality. In her free time, she is also a part time ski instructor at Sunburst!
