Emily lives in Evansville with her husband Steve, their two children Olivia and Zachary. Emily has experience working in a church setting and, as the Office Manager, she enjoys getting to know the members and becoming involved in the vibrant ministries of St. John’s.
She grew up in southern Wisconsin on a dairy farm, and following high school she studied Social Work at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. Following college, she managed a group home for teens and adults with cognitive disabilities.
Emily has been a member of an ELCA church her entire life, and St. John’s feels very much like the church she grew up in. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, camping, hiking, crafting, and reading a good book. Her family’s rescue dogs are Bogey Blue Devil Bedhogger and Rusty Marshmallow Schmitzer Pickles.
