Emily holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Exercise Science and Master of Science in Human Nutrition from Colorado State University. After obtaining her degrees, Emily worked for Colorado State University developing and implementing a nutrition education curriculum targeting the prevention of childhood obesity. Her love of teaching also took her to Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado where she practiced as a dietitian and certified diabetes educator. In 2008, Emily returned to her hometown of Lamar, Colorado to join High Plains Community Health Center and LiveWell Prowers County to bring organizations and partners together to tackle high rates of obesity and chronic disease in this rural Colorado community. In 2013, Emily led the Lamar effort to become one of three communities in the state of Colorado to be a Healthy Places community. Community members have embraced the Healthy Places initiative and are rolling up their sleeves to transform Lamar, Colorado into an active, vibrant community.
