Emily is from Forsyth, a small town in Georgia, USA. She grew into her love for music through her family of musicians who believed that creativity and self-expression are an important part of a full life. Emily attended the University of Georgia where she played with the Redcoat Marching Band (piccolo and trombone) and majored in Voice and Music Education. In 2014, she moved to Sweden and began her teaching career as a music teacher at IES Bromma. This is her second year at SIS.
Emily also enjoys reading and writing fantasy fiction. Having grown up in a hot place, Emily appreciates the Swedish winter and takes every chance she can to hike and camp in nature. She is very proud of her ultralight backpacking setup. She also enjoys watching American Football and has recently taken up cooking as a hobby, but a simple taco will always be her favourite meal.
