Emily is thrilled to be returning to the tri-state area after a very snowy four years in Boston where she attended Emerson College and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in writing, literature and publishing. Though Emily will always love New York City first and foremost, it was in Boston that she discovered a passion for teaching and education. She volunteered over one hundred hours as an after-school tutor at 826 Boston, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood. During the school year, Emily loved to work with teenagers and spends her summers at her beloved childhood day camp in Rockland County, NY. On weekends, you can most likely find Emily camped out in a coffee shop with a notebook or exploring the city with friends!
