Emily knew Geneva Glen was great on her very first day in 2002. She met new friends, went to the Council Ring to sing songs, and saw some horses, a rabbit, and a deer. It was heaven. Over the years, she has enjoyed spending time with camp’s humans and animals more and more. She's worked on the Dish Crew, as a Counselor, and as Assistant and Head Wrangler at the barn from 2009 to 2015. A love of learning brought her to DU for a BA in English and Spanish and then to CSU for a BS in Equine Science. She is also certified in Animal Assisted Activities, Therapies, and Interventions and cares deeply about connecting people and animals through education and fun. In 2019, she founded a horsemanship training and consultation company, E-J LLC, which fortunately led her back to camp! She is thrilled to be up at GG, helping kids and staff have rich, safe, and rewarding experiences. Camping, cuddling with her cattle dog mix, snowboarding, and listening to audiobooks are her favorite non-camp activities.
