Emily has been on a mission to help women from the beginning of her career. While earning her BA in Women’s Studies, she worked as a domestic violence victim advocate. During law school she served as Legal Intern at the National Organization for Women in DC, which solidified her passion for advocacy work. Following law school, Emily worked as a trial attorney with Legal Aid, helping women and children in family law and domestic violence cases. She went on to receive her Master’s Degree in Broadcasting.
As a lifelong boot lover, Emily spent time learning the craft of shoe-making in Cuernavaca, Mexico and the Brooklyn Shoe Space in New York.
In 2009, she and her husband Ryan took over AAA School of Trucking, a truck and heavy equipment safety training firm, which she has helped grow into a national business. It was during her years there that she noticed the footwear problem—there wasn’t any! Determined to create safety boots that she’d actually want to wear, Emily assembled a team to bring Juno Jones to life.
Emily sits on committees with Women in Trucking, and Empowering Women in Industry, and is on the Board of Direcctors for NAWIC Phila. She is a Sustaining Member of the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
Her work has been featured in art exhibits and as a PFI at Macy’s “Designer in Residence”, and she’s been featured in over 60 publications including Women’s Wear Daily, Footwear News, and ABC TV.
Emily is also the host of the top 5% globally ranked Hazard Girls Podcast.
