Emily was born and raised in South Bend Indiana and moved to Fort Wayne in 2008 to attend Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.

Emily's favorite thing to do with her spare time is volunteer work around the community. She has been involved in Relay for life, Fort for Fitness, The American Diabetes Association Walk for Diabetes, Vincent Village Fundraisers, and March of Dimes events in Fort Wayne. As a sophomore at IPFW, she was the President of the Community Council where she organized several student groups to participate in charity events. Emily also enjoys spending time with her friends and family, traveling to see her older brothers, watching movies, following college sports, and playing with her dog Luke.
As a native of South Bend, Emily has been a Notre Dame fan since she was a little girl. Her favorite Notre Dame sports to follow are football, baseball, and women's basketball. Emily's favorite color is lime green and her favorite food is ice cream. Something that most people do not know about Emily is that at age 17, she got the opportunity to interview the President of the United States for her high school news program. Emily loves to travel and collects t-shirts from every place she goes to. The thing she is most excited about for the 2013 baseball season is having a minor league team to follow and root for!
