Bio: A granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, Emily was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, where her grandmother used to share her story of survival with school groups and community members. Emily moved to Pittsburgh in 2011 and became involved with the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh in 2018, when she started volunteering as a Generations Speaker. In late 2022, she was hired by the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and now serves as its Director of Programs and Education, allowing her to combine a cause she cares about with her professional skills. Emily lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, two teenaged kids, and her Boston Terrier. She loves being with her family, hiking, gardening, writing, and doing what she can to make the world a better place.”
