Emily joined Education Pioneers because she believes that collaborative and diverse leaders can have a transformative impact on urban education.  She is excited to work with the EP team to inspire and develop emerging leaders committed to education reform.

Prior to joining Education Pioneers, Emily served as a Teaching Fellow at Citizen Schools, where she developed and led out-of-school time educational programming for students in the Roslindale and Mattapan neighborhoods of Boston.  As a Teaching Fellow, Emily supported a team of 15 sixth graders as they transitioned into middle school and partnered with adult volunteers to design and teach hands-on learning projects. She also worked with Citizen Schools' Staff Alumni Engagement Team, coordinating the organization's efforts to mobilize and support former staff members as they continue their careers in education.  Emily is a graduate of Columbia University, where she earned a BA in English.
