Emily has experienced firsthand the demands placed on Christian leaders that can result in a struggle to maintain a holistic, God-honoring lifestyle. Through the praxis of her various nonprofit leadership roles, as well as graduate studies emphasizing spiritual formation, Emily has grown in her own pursuit of development as a well-rounded Christian leader. And she has a desire to share from her experiences to encourage others in their leadership walk.


Before joining Tearfund in 2020, Emily held various global leadership positions at Compassion International in the areas of church-based child/youth development programming and impact strategy redesign. She also served on the board of the Accord Network trade association for Christian relief and development in the USA. Currently, she serves on the Executive Steering Committee for the Americas Initiative of Duke Divinity’s Center for Reconciliation.


Emily holds a BS in International Management and Spanish and a certificate in K-12 Education from Missouri State. She also earned a MA in Organizational Leadership for International Development through a Latin American program of Eastern University.
