After leaving the MPA program, Emilee spent a year consulting nonprofits, traveling, and substitute teaching. After a year, she decided to return to education and taught 2nd grade in Granite School District in Salt Lake City, Utah for 5 years.

In her free time, she enjoys heading to the mountains for hiking or skiing, cheering on her favorite sports teams (Go Jazz!), and planning her next vacation.
