My offical-ish bio is below, but I want to add that I've met Noam Chomsky and while I do play Galaga I don't track my scores.

Emily directs the non-partisan Idaho Civic Engagement Project, a non-profit that engages and registers young voters. She’s a recent graduate of Boise State, where she earned a degree in linguistics with honors and gave the commencement address. While there, she was elected as student lobbyist and worked on higher education funding issues at the Idaho legislature. She serves on the boards of Boise Young Professionals, Go Lead Idaho, Boise State University Media Board and the Boise State Public Radio Community Advisory board. She was recently named one of the 2013 Women of the Year by the Idaho Business Review. In her spare time she helps women get elected to office.
