Director of Development
Emily lived in Mid Michigan all of her life until the Lord called her to join the Show Hope team in September 2022. Her first connection to the ministry was through the annual Hope for the Journey Conference that she attended to continue her foster care training. After watching one module of the conference, she knew she needed to share it, and that’s when she found the exact position she held at the Community Foundation was open at Show Hope. As only God could do, he gave clear direction that Show Hope was where he wanted to continue to use her gifts to connect with and encourage people to stand in the gap for his youngest image-bearers. Emily loves meeting new people, exploring God’s creation, and encouraging friends and family.
