My name is Emily, and I am a 25-year-old from the United States who is a current resident here in New Zealand.

Back home in America I have 8 siblings I have left behind. I am the second oldest, and miss them all quite a bit. I have lived in New Zealand for 3 years now and have absolutely fallen in love with this amazing country. I have found myself so lucky to have ended up in such an amazing and beautiful place that has so much to offer.

I have recently started my first year of University at UC studying a Bachelors in Speech and Language Pathology and I am so excited to see where this journey takes me. In my spare time I enjoy most sports (specifically football/soccer and basketball), travel, photography, and spending time with my loved ones here in New Zealand. I have 5+ years of experience working with children of all ages. I have worked with children of 6 weeks to 15/16 years old. I love the younger age group and watching their minds explore and learn and I loved seeing how differently and imaginative their brains work compared to adults.

I look forward to meeting you!
