She developed an interest in building science and sustainable design in college, where she was inspired to design healthy, durable and energy efficient homes that are also comfortable and beautiful. She is a building science educator, co-host on “The BS & Beer Show” and hosts a monthly podcast “E3 - Energy and Efficiency with Emily,” where she focuses on building science, architecture, and female entrepreneurship.

She collaborated with Dan Kolbert, Michael Maines, and Christopher Briley on a recently released book The Pretty Good House.

This course is built around those core PGH principles.
