Emily was raised in the beautiful grit city of Tacoma, WA. Growing up in the Northwest she developed a love for outdoor adventures, coffee, good music, and diversity. She spent many years at Surfing The Nations straight out of high school then returned back home for a few years where she picked up a passion for coaching high school sports and remodeling homes. She felt the pull to come back and serve the local community here. Emily is excited to be back on da aina and to be a part of the Internship staff.
