Peach Cobbler

A native of Savannah, Georgia, Emma received her B.A. in History from Davidson College and a Masters in Social Work from The Catholic University of America. As an Army spouse of over 21 years, Emma has lived all over the country––including Washington DC, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, and New York.

Emma has worked as a social worker, assistant director of a crisis program, program manager, paralegal, and administrator in non-profit organizations, law firms, and companies. A mother of three, Emma also volunteered in her children’s school and for the West Point Spouses Club at her family’s last duty station.

After 23 years of service, including combat zone deployments and an assignment to the Korean peninsula, her husband has retired from the Army. It has become clear to her that this is the perfect inflection point in her life to seek out additional self-improvement in the area of small business and entrepreneurship. Although Emma is open to all opportunities, she hopes to use her social work background and knowledge gained through the Dog Tag Fellowship program to start a business that will help other military members.

Given her home state, it should be no surprise that her favorite dessert is peach cobbler.
