Prior to joining the GOCO team, Emily spent the last eleven years working with local nonprofit groups and government organizations helping support and manage their community and youth development programs. From 2011 to 2013, she was in Zambia serving as a Rural Education Development Specialist in the Peace Corps. Since then, her work has spanned natural resource outreach, community education, and outdoor programming. Throughout these experiences she’s worked closely with the finance team and, as her career developed, she realized how much she truly enjoys it.
Here at GOCO, she finds herself lucky that her role aligns with her love of the outdoors, passion for supporting community programs, and the enjoyment she gets from being a part of the finance team. She enjoys spending quality time camping with friends, exploring little out-of-the-way mountain towns and historic sites, and finding a magical spot on the river and flyfish the day away.
