Emily joined SVA in August of 2019 as a client service representative. She considers herself an expert organizer and boasts “I can fold a fitted sheet REALLY well.” Her two favorite parts of the job are getting to work with animals and getting to learn about infectious diseases. When she’s not at work, she likes to spend time talking to her plants (and possibly rapping Ghetto Cowboy by Bone Thugs N’ Harmony– lyrics she knows by heart). When she was growing up she couldn’t decide whether she wanted to be a mermaid or a race car driver, so veterinary assistant seemed like a reasonable compromise. She shares her apartment with a very substantial cat named Maudie. Emily loves to announce Maudie’s entrance into the room like a WWE announcer welcoming “Maudie the Body” to the ring.
