In addition to being a top student, Emily is an engaged global citizen who has studied abroad twice--on the Rinker Global Scholars program to Venice and on a semester-long exchange to the University of East Anglia. At Stetson, she has served as a writer and editor for the Reporter, a Writing Center Tutor, Model Senate participant, Logistics Coordinator for Stetson Votes, and Director of Academics for Pi Beta Phi. Emily has also served as an intern, conducting research for Vote Water and Family Lands Remembered, in Stuart, Florida, as well as a Research Assistant to Dr. Kelly Smith. She has published articles in three newspapers and won awards for her writing, including the Davidson Award for Journalistic Integrity at Stetson and two Society of Professional Journalism Sunshine State Awards. Her professors have no doubt that she will continue to embody personal and social responsibility in her future career in environmental law. Dr. Smith has commented, "In class, Emily engages deeply in the course material and makes connections across course content...Emily is also an excellent researcher...(who) pays close attention to detail and takes initiative on research projects."
Emily is a sniper: she works quietly out of the spotlight, and her writing is penetrating and pinpoint‐accurate. Precision is her calling card. She is an Honors student, a Writing Center Tutor, a staﬀ member of Hatter Network, and a member of Sigma Tau Delta. She has been accepted to the University of Colorado Law School, whence she intends to launch a career practicing environmental law.
