Originally from Spokane, Washington, Emily has also lived in upstate New York and spent the past 12 years in Phoenix, Arizona. After so much time spent in the Desert Southwest, she is thrilled to be back in the four seasons.

She is a Magna cum Laude graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University but her career in news actually started before beginning this program. She worked as a video editor at the KTVK/KPHO duopoly in Phoenix, Arizona for 3 1/2 years prior to relocating to Davenport. She gained a newsroom full of mentors and often spent her days off at work shadowing reporters, meteorologists, and anchors to building up her demo reel. Her education isn’t over yet though… she is now studying at Mississippi State University to get her Certificate in Broadcast and Operational Meteorology.

Emily grew up dancing competitively but stays active now through running and hiking. She is convinced that in her new home in Davenport, she’ll also become an avid snowshoer and cross-country skier. Emily has traveled the globe and says she feels most alive while visiting foreign countries. An adventurous soul, she’s done it all- skydiving, bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, etc. When she’s not studying or exploring the outdoors, you’ll find her in the kitchen whipping up the world’s best chocolate chip cookies… ever.
