Emily was born and raised in Winter Haven, Florida. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Florida Southern College in Lakeland.
Emily is no stranger to our youth or congregation. She has been an active member of First Presbyterian Church of Winter Haven her whole life. She was born, baptized, and confirmed in our church. She is a Deacon. Emily has been a faithful member of our Honduras Mission team on several trips. She attended the Montreat Senior High Youth Conference as a youth in the church four times, and the Montreat College Conference the past three years. Emily was also elected by our presbytery as a Young Adult Advisory Delegate at the 222nd General Assembly.
As Director of Student Ministries, Emily enjoys being a part of the lives of the youth and helping them grow in their faith. She is excited to be a part of the youth program that was so special and impactful to her own life.
In her free time Emily enjoys reading, traveling, drawing, painting, spending time with family, and playing soccer (or any other sport).
