Born and raised in Portland’s Piedmont and Irvington neighborhoods on the east side of the Willamette river, Emily—along with her husband and three children—now calls the Southwest Hills home.

Emily graduated from University of Oregon with a dual degree in French and Magazine Journalism. She combined both skills and worked for ELLE magazine in New York City. The lure of the Pacific Northwest proved too strong. She said, “Goodbye to All That”, moved into a Southeast Portland floating home and rediscovered all that Oregon has to offer in the way of travel and fun.

Today, when she’s not spreading the word about Guardian Residential Lending, its down-to-earth people and happy clients, she’s volunteering in Portland Public Schools' classrooms, skiing Mt. Hood, creating art and searching for Oregon’s best IPA.

Thinking of moving to Portland? Emily’s happy to talk about our different neighborhoods, attractions, restaurants and schools.
