Emily is the founder 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 currently teaches 6th grade math in Denver, and coaches teachers through Teach For America: Colorado.
