Emily graduated from UNCG in Spring 2014 with a major in Classical Studies (Language and Literature concentration) and one course shy of an English major.  She graduated from UNC Chapel in Fall 2019 with a  Master of Science in Library Science (MSLS) with a primary focus in storytelling and digital libraries.  She enjoys researching the art and science of color and dreaming up new apps.  She prefers Latin to Ancient Greek, but spends most of her time with Homer’s Iliad.  It is not her fault that Homer wrote in Ancient Greek.
