About Emily: The arts are an integral part of my life. In my early college years, I majored in music education and liberal arts with a focus on clarinet performance. After college, I met and married the love of my life and we’ve been happily married for 18 years. We’ve lived in Utah, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Yaounde, Cameroon; Helsinki, Finland; Amman, Jordan; Colombo, Sri Lanka; and we currently reside in La Paz, Bolivia. We have four children whom I’ve homeschooled for the past 10 years as we’ve trotted about the globe. During those homeschooling years I’ve taught music lessons and Spanish, headed co-ops, lead story times and literature groups, and facilitated learning of all kinds. Teaching, learning, and the arts are my passion. I am currently finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Marriage & Family science with an emphasis in Human Services and Family Counseling, with plans to begin my Master’s studies in clinical and arts therapy.
