Emily

Where are you from-I am the youngest of two and I am originally from Kutztown,PA. While growing up, I played basketball, softball and field hockey.

College- I studied at West Chester University of Pennsylvania and my background is mainly in Chemistry

1 interesting fact that people may not know about you-
Well I don’t have any hidden talents or anything that I think is exciting. But I think this is pretty interesting: I went on a Medical Service trip to Morocco with a group of fellow nursing and PA students last March and lived in a village that was only accessible by hiking to. During this trip I lived with a family for a week where the only communication was by pretty much playing Charades. We set up health clinics and with an interpreter’s help we saw a lot of patients, some that had never even seen a health care provider before. And up to this point it has been the most amazing experience of my life. Really makes you appreciate everything that we have.
