Emily was born in Alaska but grew up all over the world, from a small village in northern Bavaria to the busy streets of Seoul. Her childhood travels took her to over 25 countries and 30 states and inspired a restless spirit and love for adventure. Once settled on the East Coast, Emily channeled that energy into hiking, camping, paddling, running, cross-country skiing, and triathlons. Today, Emily lives in Seattle and enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest. When she’s not out exploring, you can find her playing Australian rules football, making caramel from scratch, or binge watching post-apocalyptic TV shows with her rescue cat Jagger and dog, Lady.
