Emma is excited to join the Edgility family that is devoted to inclusive and equity conscious organizations. She finds comfort in knowing that Edgility’s mission aligns with her values in selecting diverse leaders that respect differences, foster allyship, and build relationships in DEI communities. Prior to Edgility, Emma’s interest in the education field began in a non-traditional classroom: the swimming pool, where she was a swim instructor and lifeguard in her local community. Emma continued to pursue education after she graduated from the University of Washington Seattle with a BA in Early Childhood and Family Studies and has volunteered in programs such as Operation Smile and MEDLIFE. As a Research Coordinator at Cultivate Learning, Emma assessed caregiver-child interactions from high-risk childcare centers and conducted data collection analysis. She went into medical research at the UW Men and Women’s Health Centers to provide opportunities for those who wish to foster a family of their own. Emma resides in the Pacific Northwest area with her family, but enjoys traveling and experiencing other cultures as well as their cuisines. Her hobbies also include swimming, gaming, and interior design.
