Growing up, Emily spent weekends with her mom driving into new developments and examining model homes, which sparked her creativity and ultimately led to the remodel of her family home in Sonoma, California. After that experience, Emily knew she wanted to pursue construction in some capacity, so she decided to spend her early college years in a technical construction program in Santa Cruz, California. In her second year, Emily transferred to Boise State University to finish her Bachelor’s degree, and started as an Assistant Project Manager for a custom home builder in Sun Valley, Idaho. After graduating, she pursued a role with a real estate development company in Boise and in the middle of 2020, she made the decision to move out of Idaho and relocate to Seattle. In 2022, Emily joined the Harjo team after working for a similar remodeling company based in a suburb of Seattle. Outside of work, Emily enjoys spending time with friends, taking walks around Green Lake, visiting new coffee shops (send her your best recs!), listening to live music, going to comedy shows, and volunteering at the Young Adult’s shelter.
