Interesting Facts About Emily 

What was your first job?

  • My first job was working at an ice cream shop in high school. (People are often impressed by my soft serve ice cream cone skills.) This job taught me how to provide excellent customer service and work quickly under pressure. It also taught me how to remain calm and courteous when dealing with disgruntled and not so polite customers. This experience helped prepare me for serving clients in my professional career.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?

  • I can crochet. When I was younger, I won several blue ribbons at the Michigan State Fair. I love making scarves for family and friends because they are easy to customize and come in handy during Michigan winters.

Name two truths and one lie about yourself. (Don’t tell which is the lie)

  1. I am the shortest Blue Chip Advisor.
  2. When I was two years old, my appendix was removed during emergency surgery for an unrelated condition.
  3. I am a great swimmer.
