Emily was born and raised in Flowery Branch GA, where she trained seriously in dance from a young age.

Emily began her training at Heather Wayne’s Performing Arts under the direction of Heather Wayne.

She is a proud alumni of HWDC/ HWPA. She went on and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance with a minor in Business management at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA.

Her training and explorations have led her to perform in works created by Jason McDole, Kiesha Lalama, Joshua Manculich, Kiki Lucus, Garfield Lemonius, Mark Burrell, and many more.

She has worked and performed with Cherrise Wakeham’s professional contemporary dance company, Project 7 performing in the 2016 ACE award winning show “SHE.”

Emily is extremely excited to return to her HWPA home and inspire the next generation of artists alongside her incredible co-workers.
