A native Floridian, Emily was born in Key West. More recently, she lived in Orlando before moving to Gainesville to become a gator. Covering news in North Central Florida for the past several years has opened her eyes to the wide range of diversity and opportunity this area has tucked away. Whether it's exploring Florida's beautiful springs and Nature Coast, enjoying any number of weekend food, music, and art festivals, or chasing down breaking news, there's always a story worth telling.
When she's not working, Emily enjoys discovering a new trail or state park, reading, cooking (and eating!), or lounging around catching up on her favorite comedians and late night shows. She always has time for a good story idea! Send her tips at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
