Emily received her degrees from Bryan College where she was a member of the varsity volleyball team and an RA during her time on campus. Emily lives in Cleveland Tennesee with her husband and their two dogs. They attend Community Fellowship church near their home. Emily loves Bryan and loves to support students the way she was supported when she was a student.

Bryan was the place I needed when I did not know what I needed. My plan was to be on the volleyball team, get a degree, and get out. But boy was I wrong, God had different plans. People at Bryan saw things in me that I would have never seen on my own. I was asked to be an RA and then to be a TA and more and more people were counting on me for different things and I had no clue why. I found that I actually was not the believer that I thought I was and my mentor poured into me in ways I could not ask for. I saw Jesus through the people at Bryan which led me to have a real relationship with Him and I am forever thankful for that. I decided my time was not over at Bryan when I took my position as the student success coach in the ARC. I want to pour into the lives of students the way that my professors, RD, coaches, and staff, poured into my life.
