Emily has an Urban and Regional Planning degree from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a law degree from Southern Illinois University. While in law school, she worked for Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation and was hired as a staff attorney there after graduation. While at Land of Lincoln, Emily represented hundreds of clients and was promoted to senior staff attorney. She was in-charge of Land of Lincoln’s Housing Task Force, which is responsible for insuring all of the housing attorneys (covering 65 Illinois counties) are aware of current housing law and for providing guidance and support for those attorneys. Emily served on the Board of Directors for St. Clair County’s Homeless Action Council (HAC) for more than 10 years. In this role, she organized the first Project Homeless Connect in St. Clair County. This annual event allows homeless people in St. Clair County to have access to help offered by a variety of social service agencies in one place rather than having to travel to the individual offices of those agencies. Emily was a volunteer for Girls Club in East St. Louis for 10 years. As the Girls Club Coordinator, she served as a role model for young underprivileged girls and organized events to allow them to experience life outside of the housing projects of East St. Louis.
