Emily was born into broadcasting; it runs in her blood, literally. Emily's father, uncle, and grandfather have all been broadcast owners. After graduating from the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) with a degree in Advertising, she went to work in the family media business in Pendleton, Oregon. After seven months of direct selling to local advertisers, Emily was promoted to GSM at the age of 24. She moved on to Ontario, Oregon—again as a GSM—where her team doubled the station's local sales revenue in less than one year.Then to Boise where she served as the Local Sales Manager for Journal Broadcast Group.
When Emily took a break from media sales for several years to start a family, she and her husband Rob, then an officer in the United States Army, lived in five states in seven years. Emily volunteered in various positions, most notably as a Family Readiness Group Advisor, helping to keep communication flowing between 900 battalion family members and their loved-ones serving overseas. They now live with their two children Jack and Ella Grace, in Spokane, Washington and if you can't find them there you will find them hanging out at their cabin in Priest Lake, Idaho.
