After completing high school, where Emily was valedictorian of her class, she continued her education at Duquesne University; becoming the first member of her immediate family to attend college. Inspired by her cousin who was a Physician Assistant, Emily decided to enter an accelerated five- year Master program to become a Physician Assistant.
Immediately after graduation, Emily received an offer to work at Sinai Hospital in the Neurology and Neurosurgery Department; where she served for several months. After her time at Sinai, she began working with Dr. Michael Randolph at his practice in Baltimore, where she has been since March 2017.
In her spare time, Emily loves doing hair and makeup. She says she, "loves bringing people joy by making them feel good; which, is basically what I do in medicine, just in a different way." Emily is also quite the artist, as she painted two murals at her alma mater, forever leaving her mark on the school.
Emily continues to try and blossom in her medical careeer. She continues to set goals and excel in all that she does.
