Emily grew up in Ralston, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln's Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film as a Theatre Performance major. With the help of a FOCUS missionary and the blessing of being cast as Joan of Arc, she discovered what it meant to truly have a personal relationship with Christ and it changed everything. With a grad school in England on the table, becoming a FOCUS missionary was NEVER in her plans, but isn't that always the story? God is good and knows us far better than we know ourselves. Now her heart is set on sharing the love Christ has given her through her art, through beauty. Emily also enjoys baseball games and all things dauntless.
