Emily graduated summa cum laude from Princeton and went on to earn an MA in History at the University of Notre Dame, where she also taught university-level classes for several years. Her students have said she’s particularly great at teaching them how to write! She now works as a project manager in the publishing industry, and also serves as a freelance editor for several major academic presses and for professors at institutions such as Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. Emily also has over five years of experience as a college admissions counselor and PSAT/SAT and ACT prep tutor, and she loves working with students to help them reach their goals. On the weekends, Emily enjoys snowboarding, training for her next marathon, and playing in a local orchestra.
