Emily Demers is originally from Georgia but now calls Franklin, Tennessee home. From her very first trip to China over a decade ago, Emily has carried a deep love of China’s people, culture, and food! The calling she felt on 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 now serves as Show Hope’s Manager of Short Term Trips. Emily considers it a privilege to have the opportunity to introduce trip members to the needs of the world’s waiting children and the hope that is possible. In her free time, Emily loves to cook, travel with friends, and spend time with her niece and nephew.
