Emily has owned and loved dogs throughout her life. During her time overseas, the absence of her dogs weighed heavily. After moving back stateside, Emily started volunteering at a local animal shelter and took a job at a pet boutique in Greenwich, CT to immerse herself in different segments of the dog universe. Emily is partial to American field Labradors. Her last labrador, Maggie, and current labrador, Nellie, both yellow field Labs, are distantly related and Nellie is named for “Nellie B. Good”, a common ancestor. In addition to Nellie, Emily helps care for her parents’ black English lab – Maggie’s and now Nellie’s best friend – Rocky.

You can read more about Nellie and all of the time she spends at the vet on her blog:

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.
