Meet Emily...

"Love me or hate me, it's still an obsession. Love me or hate me, that is the question. If you love me then, thank you! If you hate me then, f**k you!" - Lady Sovereign

WHO AM I?

A child of the world (Army brat). A lover of books, sarcasm, and carbs. Mostly, I'm a girl who's very grateful to be surrounded by people who passionately work towards making the world a better place.

I still can't believe I'm the VP of a non-profit that supports other non-profits with fundraising and marketing AND I get to work here at TKE, where we strive to be a valuable resource for those looking to develop as entrepreneurs! If you're not already jealous, you should pay closer attention...

WHEN I AM NOT CONQUERING THE WORLD...

If I'm not being passive-aggressively tortured by my terrible #adoptdontshop dogs Nash and Naui, trying to avoid being a guest on my husband Miles’ podcast, or battling a Crinkle* flair up, you can usually find me making mischief with my friends in Denton.

*What's Crinkle, you ask? Crinkle is a chronic condition where your fingers crinkle up and you can't unload the dishwasher or fold laundry or respond to an email. It's a great defense mechanism against tedious tasks that do NOT spark joy.

WHY I GET UP IN THE MORNING

To kick ass and take names, obviously. I try to set a daily goal of helping (at least) one person. Some days my good deed is to hold a door open for someone with their hands full, other days it's to put in an 18+ hour day running a fundraising event (with my AMAZING team at Friends with Benefits) so that we can give a big (literally and figuratively) check to another non-profit organization.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT ME?

Not being afraid to stand up for what's right...even if it goes against the status quo. I'm proud to be an ally and an activist!

NEXT THING TO LEARN?

Which of the many TKE initiatives to focus on first!

I SAY ALL THE TIME...

"I'm here to turn your delusions into reality!"

"If I agree with you, then we'll both be wrong."

"Hiiiiyyyyyyy" (in the highest possible pitched nasally voice)

MY SUPERPOWER IS

Making people laugh...and smile! I mean, why are people always taking things so seriously...oh no. I think I just realized I'm the villain, not the hero. #joker #letsputasmileonthatface #sogoodatbeingbad
