Emily Demers is originally from Georgia but now calls Tennessee home. From her very first trip to China, more than a decade ago, Emily has carried a deep love of China’s people, culture, and food! The calling she felt in her life to care for the needs of children who had been orphaned found a place to flourish professionally as she joined Show Hope’s staff in 2015. Emily has traveled the world with Show Hope—from touring college campuses with the Red Bus Project to leading teams to the Care Centers in China. Now, she is excited to be settling in a little closer to home with her role as Manager of Programs. In her free time, Emily loves to cook, travel with friends, and spend time with her niece and nephew.
