A fourth generation alum, Emily joined her parents and all three siblings in graduating from the University of Missouri.

There she covered everything from breaking news and crime, to tornados, hurricanes and the 2011 Virginia earthquake. Emily also reported extensively on the local military community. Covering deployments and homecomings for the Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force installations in Hampton Roads fostered a deep appreciation for military service members and their families.
