Emily is a lifelong resident of Appleton, an educator, Calumet County board supervisor, mother of three, community organizer, and autism advocate. Emily is running for many reasons, specifically access to affordable healthcare, fully funded public education including special education, ensuring fair maps by ending partisan gerrymandering, a green new deal for Wisconsin, and prioritizing the needs of our aging and disabled residents. Emily is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh with bachelors' degrees in Business Administration, and Secondary Education. When Emily was having issues with the state based medicaid, denying her son much needed autism therapy she went to the incumbent looking for help, he provided none and said there was nothing he could do. Emily did not feel that was a satisfactory answer for anyone to give, and that is why she is running for State Assembly. Emily is a fierce advocate for families in her district and all of Wisconsin.
