Raised in rural Wisconsin on her family’s dairy farm and in a legalistic pseudo-Christian cult, Emily was born again at age twenty-one. She served as a Long Term Field worker with CVM in Uganda for over five years teaching at the veterinary school. Returning to the US to work in her family-owned business, she remains flexible to continue with CVM in an associate role. Her passions are mental health, apologetics, and discipleship which she addresses through her writing, speaking, leading, and mentoring. For fun she likes to spend time with her friends and prefers to be outdoors when the weather permits it.
