Emily is based in our Mt. Pocono office. Her work focuses on watersheds, renewable energy, forest conservation, and environmental advocacy, including community outreach and coalition management. She is also the Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed’s Pennsylvania state lead.
Before joining PennFuture, Emily worked as a watershed specialist and urban resources conservationist with two county conservation districts, as a children’s environmental camp director, as a naturalist, and as a river kayak guide.
She is involved with many volunteer organizations, such as the Audubon Society and SEEDS: Sustainable Energy and Education Development Support based in Honesdale, PA. She is also a member of Trout Unlimited as well as the Wildlife Society.
Emily earned a B.S. degree in Environmental Resource Management from Keystone College, where she was the Eco Club President for two years and also served as the Campus Sustainability Committee student representative.
Born and raised in the Borough of Throop, PA, Emily is an avid angler, hiker, traveler, kayaker, and birder. Emily’s love for birding has resulted in a nine-year stretch of volunteering at a bird banding station in Dalton, PA. It has also brought her to Belize twice and to volunteer with Operation Ruby-throat, a program that tracks hummingbird and Neo-tropical migrant migration patterns from North America to Central America.
