Emily is a native Bronxite who relocated to Yonkers with her husband 6 years ago. Although she was a serious nerd in school, she hated writing papers. In fact, this was a major contributor in her choosing to major in math as an undergrad. Now, in addition to writing here, she also has her own blog at . It's funny how things change.  In addition to writing, Emily works full time in the insurance industry, is in graduate school (again majoring in math), teaches dance, and is mommy to a 3 year old boy and a baby girl (born May 2016). She met her hubby back in 2007 when they were both taking part in a community theater production of The Music Man. They were partnered as dancers and have been partnered ever since. They were engaged on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and had a Halloween themed wedding on that day in October 5 years ago when there was a giant snowstorm and then the next was beautiful. She is no longer bitter about this.  Other things you might care to know: Emily has been dancing since she was 3 and has danced professionally for sports teams and dance companies. She was National Mrs. New York 2015. Her son has been singing songs from Sweeney Todd since the age of 2 and is currently expanding his Broadway repertoire. He wants to be a producer. Her daughter was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism at 6 days old, but she has been on meds ever since and is doing great. Emily is an organizational wizard and a spreadsheet junkie.
