Born and raised in Turner, Emily now lives in Overland Park with her husband Joe (high school English teacher and golf coach) and son Fitzgerald (2). Emily and Joe met in college, but later found out they grew up mere blocks from each other and even had the same kindergarten teacher just one year apart! After 11 years of teaching 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades and K-6 STEM, Emily is now an instructor at the University of St. Mary. She likes to explore old and new spots in Kansas City so Fitz learns to love this great city too! She enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and cheering on the Chiefs and Royals. Emily's current goals: Be more organized, make dinner more often, and read more books just for fun!
