Emily is an outdoor enthusiast disguised as the TimberHomes bookkeeper.

After graduating with a B.A. in Biology and Women’s Studies in the early 2000s, Emily found herself huddled with petri dishes in a windowless room. She escaped to the mountains: first to volunteer with the Service Civil International on a Swiss alpine farm, then to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. She hiked, skied, and climbed in the mountains for a decade, leading outdoor trips and environmental education programs in the White Mountains of NH for the Appalachian Mountain Club.

In 2010, Emily moved to Vermont to raise her two daughters. For 7 years, she co-owned a renovation/remodel business and dug into the administrative/human resources side of being a business owner. She geeked out on QuickBooks and sharpened her “mommy brain” by taking classes on bookkeeping and business development at the VT Small Business Development Center and the River Bend Career and Technical Center.

After a stint as the town librarian, she was hired temporarily by TimberHomes to help onboard a new bookkeeping system.  In 2020, she came back for more, accepting a permanent position with TimberHomes.

When she’s not working, you can find her hanging off rock and ice cliffs in NH and VT or picking away at the NH 48 4,000-foot mountain list with her daughters, who are not so young anymore.
