Growing up in Omaha, Neb., Emily is a true Midwesterner. She attended Iowa State University where she received her BA in Advertising and Art & Design, as well as a crash course in bicycle touring on RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). After completing her first RAGBRAI, Emily took touring to the next level with a cross country cycling trip to help raise money and awareness for affordable housing. The 4,000 mile ride from coast to coast is Emily's biggest cycling accomplishment thus far, but she has plans for more trips in the near future.
After graduating, Emily moved to Seattle to work as the Youth Vote Director with the Washington State Democratic Party, where she has grown to love the Pacific Northwest. In her free time she loves to cook, run, draw, be on/in the water, see live music, and try new foods.
