ATD Birmingham 2023

After graduating from Auburn University, Emily pursued the natural choice (with her Dad as a retired Administrator/Coach & Mom as retired Elementary School teacher) of teaching middle school for Jefferson County Schools. After 5 years, she fell upon United Way of Central Alabama (by accident) & shifted careers to assist school campaigns & eventually take on many other duties in Resource Development. With her teaching experience, she was recruited quickly to use those ‘teacher’ organizational skills to do more training & plan programs. She continued that path for both UWCA volunteers & staff including training hundreds of company representatives in the Loaned Executive Program. 

Emily joined ATD in 2016 and has served on the Board since 2020. In both roles, Emily finds her passion providing hospitality & support to members & employees.


Currently - Director of Organizational Development

United Way of Central Alabama
