About Emily

Emily leads our work to build a more connected, community-focused, and equitable food system through efforts like our Foodshed Mapping Project.

Before joining Pasa, Emily was an educator and advocate for equity specifically at the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, citizenship, and socioeconomic status. After earning her master’s degree in food and agriculture law and policy from Vermont Law School, she chose to transition her career advocating for equity within the U.S. food system.

Originally from Ohio, Emily and her wife Ames live in Philadelphia with their two cats Detroit and Oladipo. Outside of work, she can be found tasting all the foods of Philly, learning how to woodwork, and planning out her garden.
