Emma was born and raised in Lawrence, Kansas where she attended the University of Kansas earning degrees in English and American Studies, with a focus on Women and Gender Studies.
Emma has more than 15 years of nonprofit experience fundraising for arts education, children’s advocacy, and housing and homelessness before joining College Possible.
Access to higher education has never been more important, or more inaccessible than it is today. Emma is excited to connect with community members around a shared commitment to education equity and give donors the opportunity to make transformational impact in the lives of Oregon youth.
Emma is a member of ninety-nine girlfriends and serves on the board of OAASIS (Oregon Abuse Advocates and Survivors in Service). She lives in Southeast Portland with her husband, young son, cat, and three chickens.
