Emily works to combine data and statistics with partners' stories from the field to create both a realistic and comprehensive narrative of what we are doing around the world. Emily takes on a supportive role on the Grants Team, working diligently through organization and administration. During her time at Point Loma Nazarene University, she dove into a study on the correlation between economic empowerment and the reduction of gender-based violence in rural farming communities. This inspired Emily to join our team and further our mission.
Through an experience living in Amman, Jordan, Emily had the honor of working alongside Syrian refugees through yoga-based therapy. Whilst teaching classes, Emily formed a passion for writing ethical stories of survivors of trauma in a way that communicates dignity and empowerment. When Emily is not at work, you can find her on the beaches of San Diego catching a wave or drinking a good cup of coffee.
