Emily was born and raised on a farm Waynesboro, Virginia. Her family moved to Singapore during part of her middle and high school years where she developed a love for other cultures and travel. She earned a bachelors in Elementary Education from Juniata College and the year following graduation, she served a year in Tunisia, Africa teaching 6 missionary children in an area where there was no school to serve them. Returning to her hometown to teach sixth grade math, she grew closer to an old family friend and married her best friend, Mark. After 6 years of teaching Emily decided to stay at home to be with their first born, Hayden who is now 12. Currently, Emily feels blessed to be able to homeschool their 5 children (Mary 10, Lauren 8, John 7, and Andrew 4) and serves as worship leader to children at their church. From a very young age, Emily has felt an overwhelming desire to love on and be with children of all ages. God has given her many opportunities to use her passion to serve God and give Him glory.
