Emily studied elementary education for two years at Missouri State University. She is an assistant in the Sunflowers classroom and loving it! She has experience working with children, as she has been a nanny for several different families, as well as working at a preschool and kids summer camp. She also works at Bridges for Youth which is a non profit organization for at risk youth here in Springfield. It is a safe place for the kids to come to after school and hang out with friends, have a free snack, and a small devotion time. It is completely free for the families. This is her third year working at Bridges and she loves it. In her free time, she loves to paint, hand letter, embroider, read, hammock or just be outside enjoying nature!
