Born & raised in Columbia, MO, Emily graduated from the University of Missouri & became a third-grade teacher for four years. After an unplanned move to Phoenix, Emily started a new career in real estate. A lover of food & travel, Emily enjoys soaking up the warm Arizona sunshine with her beloved goldendoodle, Stella. 

Spending time with family & friends is a top priority for Emily, whether that means attending a football game, dining out, or simply lounging on the couch watching rom-coms. Emily keeps herself busy by traveling, doing Pure Barre, reading, being outside, shopping, & taking Stella to the farmers market. She adores the fact that the sun shines nearly all the time in Phoenix, making it nearly impossible to ever have a bad day. 

Emily’s spirit animal is a dolphin because they symbolize joy, harmony & intelligence. The dolphin’s qualities resonate with Emily because she is always trying to maintain a positive mindset & exude happiness!
