Emily graduated from Purdue University in 2021 where she studied Animal Sciences. While at Purdue Emily got involved in a campus ministry, Cru, which changed everything. During a stateside summer mission with Cru, the Lord revealed to her how she had placed her future hope of becoming a veterinarian in the place that only God should hold. After going back and forth for a year, Emily was finally able to make the decision and find peace in not pursuing vet school. She is excited to continue working along with the team to bring the hope she has found in Jesus Christ to lost students throughout Chicago. Emily also loves her dog Peeta, going to group exercise classes, and singing in the car.
