Emily was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to parents Carol and Charlie. She started acting, singing, and dancing at the young age of 5 and immediately knew that she'd be spending her life performing. She started doing local and school plays while auditioning in New York. She was cast in the National Broadway Tour of Oliver! at the age of 11. She left 6th grade to tour the country for 9 months. She returned to middle school for 7th grade, but very quickly booked the lead in the Off-Broadway production of The American Girl Revue in New York City. Read more... every week for the remainder of middle school. Then, the city of Bethlehem opened up a new high school for the performing arts and she attended LVPA as a theatre major for 4 years of high school. With plans of attending Fordham University on a full scholarship in the fall of 2010, she was very quickly cast in the National Broadway Tour of Spring Awakening! She toured the country again as the character Thea in her favorite musical! Upon return from the tour she made the move to Los Angeles with best friend and actress Bailey Noble to pursue film. In December of 2011 she released a single on iTunes "Sleeping With The Enemy" and filmed the music video. She is currently living in Los Angeles auditioning and pursuing film and music.
