Content Production Coordinator

Emese believes women's health, mental health, and spiritual health really matter, so she jumps at the chance to bring those conversations to light. In her spare time, Emese enjoys finding challenging workout videos on Youtube (because gyms are hard for introverts), and she's all about getting creative in the kitchen and making recipes a little different every time- who needs measuring cups?

Avocado everything. Emily has been a vegetarian for 10 years and probably loves animals more than people. She plays (or as she puts it, 'by play, I mean occupy space on the field') in a co-ed flag football league in her spare time.
