Emily grew up in small town in northwest Ohio, and graduated from Ball State University with a degree in elementary education and vocal music. Although Emily grew up with a family rooted in the Catholic faith, when she arrived on campus her freshman year the Catholic faith was suddenly something that required a choice. She chose to ask the big questions and became involved with the Catholic community on campus. It was through her sister, Gina, that Emily was introduced to Saint Paul’s Outreach. Through Saint Paul's Outreach, Emily experienced the power of the Holy Spirit alive in God’s people and came to invite the Lord to work in her life even more deeply and more boldly. You might know that if you give the Lord an inch He may take a mile! Emily is thrilled to be working full time with SPO for her second year, building the Kingdom particularly though serving the students at THE Ohio State University.
Emily loves her family and friends, and takes joy in spending time with them over games, meals, and celebrations. She loves to run, read, bake, hike, and dig in the dirt. Emily has lived in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Germany, and is happy to be living in Ohio once again, this time serving with SPO.
