She attended UMASS Amherst and Bridgewater State College, obtaining a Master’s degree in Psychology and then moved to Vermont in 1990. While interning as a Guidance Counselor, Emily met Lynn Berry, Guidance Counselor, Artist, and published poet. When Lynn shared her poems and Emily shared her music, a songwriting team was born. Since then, they have written many songs and released several CDs. Emily has entertained audiences throughout the east coast. Her latest release “Peace Offering” (December 2011) is a collection of traditional and original songs of peace including a few Pete Seeger covers. Dedicated to those who strive for peace within and across all nations, Emily and Lynn incorporated Nash Basom’s photos and writings from his 1972 peace mission in Mozambique into the album’s theme and message. Nash, a friend and Guidance colleague, passed away in August 2011. Emily's discography also includes "ShadowTime", a collection of traditional and original lullabies.
