Emily has owned and loved dogs throughout her life. She has worked as a volunteer dog trainer and walker at a local animal shelter and at a pet boutique in Greenwich, CT. Emily is partial to American field Labradors. Her last Lab, Maggie, and current Lab, Nellie, both yellow field Labs, are distantly related and Nellie is named for “Nellie B. Good”, their common ancestor. In addition to Nellie, Emily helps care for her parents’ black English lab – Maggie’s and now Nellie’s best friend – Rocky.
When she’s not researching and outlining a new story idea, editing, or reporting, Emily can usually be found hiking the riding trails in Bedford, roaming Central Park, or quail hunting in Georgia – – with Nellie.
