Emily’s interest in archaeology was sparked after taking an amateur museology internship course in the 5th grade while growing up on a farm in Clayton, Washington. She decided to make archaeology her career by graduating with her B.A. in Anthropology with an Archaeology concentration from Western Washington University (WWU) in 2020. One of her favorite archaeological projects was conducting a post-fire archaeological survey during her field school in Coral Pass, Mt. Rainer National Park. Emily has worked for Drayton since the fall of 2019, and has since developed skills in curation, faunal analysis, and artifact photography. She wishes to pursue a master’s degree to further specialize in osteology, zooarchaeology, and fire survey. In her free time, Emily enjoys sailing in the waters of the beautiful pacific northwest.
