Emily Allen is from Louisville - yes a Louisville native! And she proudly proclaims, Go Cards! She has always been involved in the church growing up in VBS and youth group. When she was in college she served as a Children's intern and felt her call to ministry during college.
Professionally, Emily is most passionate about seeing the "ah ha" moment in the life of young people - those moments where they see God acting in their loves and in the world. Personally, she is most passionate about her Chicago Cubs!
When Emily was growing up she wanted to be a chef - her youth minister in high school actually took her to see Emeril Lagasse cook on Good Morning America when he came to Louisville. When Emily is not working she is most likely at the Louisville Zoo with her 3 year old son William. And don't you dare go to Emily's house and leave dirty dishes in her sink, as that is her number one pet peeve!
