Emily began at Clean Water Action in September 2004 in Ann Arbor where she filled several roles such as Senior Field Manager, before her current position as Canvass Director. She also canvasses two days a week, and immensely values her time spent training staff and organizing in the community. Emily grew up near Philadelphia, raised by parents who taught her early on the importance of working to better the community in which she lived. Before working for Clean Water Action, Emily spent a year as a Field Manager at the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program in Denver. She also has a degree in Classical Languages from Kenyon College. In her spare time, you'll generally find Emily somewhere outside, be it biking, playing disc golf or camping out.
