A Georgia native, Emily developed an appreciation for travel and culture early in life after the unique experience of living as an expat in Beijing, China from ages 5-8. Upon her return to the states, she and her family officially started to call Richmond, Virginia “home”. Here, she spent her middle and high school years as a decorated equestrian eventer and soccer player, who went on to play Division 1 Women’s Soccer at Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina.
Her passion for success on the soccer field translated into the classroom. Emily remained on the Dean’s list during her collegiate athletic career and graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science and Kinesiology. This degree would bring her back to her Georgian roots, as she landed a job in 2011 as an Assistant Athletic Training Intern for the Women’s Professional Soccer Team, the Atlanta Beat.
In 2012, Emily began her legal career as a file clerk at a small Plaintiff’s law firm located in the Roswell area. Here, she was mentored and trained as a paralegal, gaining experience in Plaintiff representation (accident and personal liability, automobile liability, and premises liability). In 2013, she transferred over to the other side of the “vs” and gained over 3.5 years of experience in corporate defense law. During that time, Emily specialized in nursing home medical malpractice, accidents and personal injury, appeals, automobile liability [individual and insurance], insurance defense, litigation and pre-litigation, mediation/arbitration, and premises liability. Emily is team and detailed oriented, driven, social, and has a well-rounded set of qualities and skills which make her an asset to the Kaufman Law family and our clients.
Recently engaged, Emily enjoys planning her upcoming wedding, as well as going to the park, spending time with friends, and attending various music and food festivals.
