Since joining ERS in 2014, Emily has worked on projects across the country, with a focus on realigning their resources to promote student achievement. Her work has taken her to Los Angeles, Tulsa, New York State, Baltimore, Charlotte, and Hartford. She managed the team’s work in Baltimore which helped get $180M back into their budget from state and city sources and in Hartford to support the new superintendent with a plan to reconfigure the school network and dramatically change the resource environment in which schools operate. Emily is also a leader within the organization, coordinating staffing for consultants across projects, organizing the 2-week New Hire Orientation, and supporting organizational development opportunities wherever she can.
Prior to ERS, Emily worked as a high school math teacher and 9th grade dean at the Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, MA. Her interest in education began in rural South Africa where she spent a year teaching at the Tiger Kloof Educational Institute in Vryburg, and a summer working at a Peace Corps site and teaching in the Limpopo province.
Outside of work, Emily rows for the Community Rowing competitive women's crew team. She loves to compete and enjoys local sprint triathlons and road races.
