Emily is the founder and Executive Director of Victor’s Vision. As a student at Villanova University, Emily spent considerable time living and volunteering throughout Latin America, growing a passion for Latin American culture and working with underprivileged youth. After a week in Chulucanas in 2009, Emily made a personal commitment to better the lives of the children she’d met there; so, in March of her senior year she started Victor’s Vision. Emily graduated from Villanova University in May 2010 with a degree in Spanish and Peace and Justice Studies.
Since graduating, Emily worked for a non-profit working with students in the St. Louis public school system, was a Teach for America corps member, and has since taught in Chicago, Los Angeles and now Denver. Emily is currently pursuing a Master's in School Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania, teaches 6th grade math in Denver, and coaches teachers through Teach For America: Colorado.
